Quand tu dis "une papillon", tu as raison, c'est une femelle... Dans les Lycaenidae la femelle est souvent brune alors que le mâle est souvent bleu. Ton "Papillonus comunus" est en fait un "Lampides boeticus", au nom commun de "Argus porte-queue", effectivement commun en Europe méridionale et dans la zone méditerranéenne.

Bonjour Loic,
Welcome to TN!
This is a sharp and well composed fine shot of the Geranium Bronze (Cacyreus marshalli), not L. boeticus. Your shot shows both the underside and upperside of the wings, which helps with the ID.
C marshalli is a recently establishes species in Europe from S. Africa. It had come in with Pelargonium and Geranium flowers.
Thanks for sharing this one,
I hope to see many more of your photos.
Regards, Ivan

le papillon est joli et bien presenté.
