Response Statement - Karner Blue

The Karner Blue is a small butterfly with a wingspread of just 22 to 32 mm. The upper side of the male's wing is iridescent light blue, edged with a thin black line that parallels a white fringe on the wing's outer margins. The upper side of the female's wing is purple-blue with a purple-brown tone; a chain of black spots appears on the leading and outer areas of the wings. An inner parallel row of orange crescents embrace these black spots. The bottom side of both sexes is light silver-grey with several white-edged, black spots in the inner areas of both wings.
