Red-spotted Purple Butterfly

A Red-spotted Purple Butterfly that I capture up to the farm. I would have named it a Brown-spotted Blue Butterfly though, I just don’t see the other colors!

    I would agree. They were first pointed out to me as spicebush swallowtails and soon after pipevine swallowtails. I was skeptical since they lacked the “swallowtail” and sought professional help. How they arrived at RSP is beyond me but hopefully they have recovered from the malaise that launched such confusion.
