Dark Grass Blue – Tabuk

Whilst birding the large and extensive pivot irrigation fields near Tabuk I came across a huge number of Dark Grass Blue Zizeeria karsandra. Dark Grass Blue is a small butterfly found in the Southern Mediterranean, in a broad band to India, Sri Lanka, the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, Burma, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, New Guinea and northern and eastern Australia. It belongs to the Lycaenids or Blues family. Most information does not have the speies range in Saudi Arabia but it has been recorded in the north of the Kingdom from the west side to the east side.
