The Velvet Flat, Celaenorrhinus ficulnea queda (Plötz)

This is not a very common insect and may be observed from time to time in undergrowths - this one was resting under a melastoma leaf in a riverine undergrowth right on my usual path. I thought it was a Notocrypta but in flight, it has a much "blacker" appearance and of course, settles on the underside of leaves.
