It has no tails and its wings are more rounded. The upper side of the male is a slightly different shade of blue in comparison to the Common Line Blue. In females, the blue is confined to the base of the forewing. While the underside of both sexes are similar, there is some variation in colour and more in pattern. Both wings have six bands of irregular white lines, especially in the outer pair of bands of the forewing. The pair of basal bands of the forewing extends below the cell. The bands on the hindwing are not distinctly separated. Usually, the crescent-shaped markings are more distinct than in the Common Line Blue, but never as in the Six Line Blues. The black tornal spot is outlined in orange at length, sometimes to the point of a complete ring. The anal angle could have two minute black spots surrounded by orange and blue scales.
Its habits are almost similar to those of the Common Line Blue and both species tend to occur together.
