Tanna Longtail

Tanna Longtail, Urbanus tanna, is easily confused with the Teleus Longtail, but the 5 white dots in the short white line on his wing separates him from the Teleus. Seen in my garden yesterday, though I am still seeing way fewer butterflies than usual in June.

And though these look like two different butterflies with the dark brown and light brown contrast, they are the same individual in differing light. 🙂
