The Common Blue Polyommatus icarus

 

This Blue is probably the most wide-spread of all the Blues.  The bright sky-blue of the male is familiar to most people.  The larvae feed on Birdsfoot Trefoil, Medick, Rest Harrow and other Leguminosae.

 

The larvae are very small. If you are not an experienced breeder it would be better to choose one of the easier species to rear.
