Common Line Blue

This individual was so orangey that we thought it was something new. It must have freshly eclosed.

Laurence I did some check and I think this could be something new in Singapore. It is very likely to be the Prosotas pia marginata (Margined Lineblue).

I'd think it's much closer to Common Line Blue, I have seen some individual with extreme orange color like this.
