Unlike lots of butterflies, this species has thrived despite it's territory being urbanized. It is common throughout the US and even parts of southern Canada.

Host plants are most clover and plants of the Fabaceae family.

Adults may lose their tails, so observe closely.

I love these tiny butterflies! We have several all summer long flittering in our gardens. They enjoy mudpuddling every time I water the gardens too...

What a beautiful butterfly!!! we believe we have seen one that was more on the grayer side, than blue, but we would love to see the bluer ones, as I bet they would knock your eyeballs out with their beauty!
