hairstreak?
We found this little fella at our local zoo’s butterfly garden and were just fascinated by it. He rubbed the "antennae" on the back of his wings together and they wiggled just like real ones. Sorry the pic’s so fuzzy, but its the best we could do. Went thru your whole list but couldn’t find it. Is it some sort of hairstreak? Thanks,

This little beauty is a Great Purple Hairstreak, Atlides halesus.
