    Default Large Metallic Oakblue?

    Encountered this rather large Oakblue (about the size of a Centaur Oakblue) in CCA today. A very skittish fellow who never allowed me a close-up pic.
    From the markings, this should be the Large Metallic Oakblue.

    Am I right, Dr Seow?

    Yes, you are right.

    Key line 46, 47- spot 6 nearer spot 5(or 50), 49.
    The perspective distortion makes it appear that spot 6 is midway between spot 5 & the cellend bar.( line 50).

    Spot 5, 6, & 7 are arranged in a staggered series characteristic of A. aedias.
    Following line 50 leads to A. atosia/lurida in which the 3 spots are quite different.

    Thanks, Dr Seow for the ID confirmation.
    It is a rare +1 for me for the adult checklist.
