Lycaena Tityrus, Cuivré Fuligineux, Sooty Copper

Identification & Similar species
The dark upperside hindwing eliminates most similar species. Males are sooty black on the upperside. On the underside, a double band of black marginal spots on both wings and a rather uniform greyish ground colour help distinguish the species. The very similar blue sooty copper, L. bleusei, flies in central Spain. The species do not overlap. It is separated by the orange on the upperside forewing of the male.
