Having recently bumped into our very first Lang's Short-tailed Blue in Madeira, I initially thought this was another one in our friends' garden in Spain. Curiously, the first observer of this imported species in Britain (1997?) also initially thought this to be a Lang's.

It isn't. I'm pretty sure that this is a so-called Geranium Bronze. It certainly was a regular visitor to the potted geraniums in the garden and I believe the first picture shows it ovipositing on one.
