Jalmenus clementi, the turquoise hairstreak or Clement's blue, is a butterfly of the family Lycaenidae. The species was first described by Hamilton Herbert Druce in 1902. It is found along the north-west coast of Western Australia.[1]

The larvae feed on various Acacia species, including A. alexandri, A. inaequilatera and A. tetragonophylla.

The caterpillars are attended by ants of the genus Iridomyrmex.
