12,000 to 15,000 maybe
an oyster and snails,bees,moths,butterflys,ants and much more insects. you wouldn't think there would be so many!but this is all insect species because this species is more needed to make the earth healthy and fresh mother nature mad it possible for them to not have a male involved so they can have more children to ensure the species never dies.
Generally, silver studded blue butterflys live to be over 100 years old. in Other cases, these butterflys may have a disease known to animals that is very common in this species of butterfly, called precariovertabrates. If this is the case, the butterfly will only live a couple weeks after their birth, or metamorphasis.
