    Heheee... now I 'famous' for Cycad Blue. That's surely a Cycad Blue.

    All the 6 legs and 2 antennae are accounted for. I believe those r the 2 'horns' in front of its head, which u can see from the attached below:

    No problem. Quite fun and rewarding when learning new things. Didn't know that they can become ">" as shown in your pic.

    Commander, or anyone, what r those two 'horns' called? What's the purpose?

    Those horns as you call them, are called "palpi". Their function, as I know it, is to protect the coiled up proboscis when it's in the coiled up position.
