    Help,, In New Mexico I spotted a small butterfly with black wings , red orange lower body and rest of body bluish in color.  The back wings had bluish tips ( shaped like a swallowtail).

    I can’t find any pictures of  this butterfly or moth(?) in my nature books.

     

    Anyone have an idea??  will try to post a picture

    Sounds like a purple spotted Admiral – they are a dark blue with light blue edges on the top but spotted on the under wings.
