Dear Taxacomers,

I try again to send you the image via the following link:


I hope it works and you could help me identify the blue animal on a Syzygium 
leaf. Thank you.

With Regards,

It looks similar to some Lycaenid (Lepidoptera) larvae. It appears to have 
eaten part of the leaf to its left. There is no indication of size in the 
photo, so it is difficult to be certain.

A quick Google search of "Syzygium Lycaenidae" reveals several records of 
Lycaenids feeding on that plant genus, so I would assume my suggestion is at 
least likely.
