The Tailless Line Blue, Prosotas dubiosa lumpura (Corbet)

Widespread and probably polyphagous. Common in wastelands and flowering bushes on roadsides as well as deep in the interiors.  It is often ignored due to its tiny size and drab colours. Their numbers in disturbed environment can usually be observed to spike in relation to the flowering season of the rain tree, Albizia saman, which also serves as its host plant. The caterpillars feed on the flowering structures of the Rain Tree.
