I got this one very quick shot of a worn swallowtail. It seems to have an interesting pattern of blue sub-marginal spots on the hind wings. I'm not sure what it is. Any ID help appreciated. This looks like the same species which is on the masthead of the eButterfly project on iNat, but not sure what it is.
I have no guides on butterfly. Not being very successful searching the web.
Any help in ID appreciated.
The White Admiral or Red-spotted Purple (Limenitis arthemis) is a polytypic species of North American brush-footed butterfly, common throughout much of the eastern United States. L. a. astyanax has red spots on its underside and the top of the wings are notable for their iridescent blue markings. L. a. arthemis on the other hand has a large white band traversing both the forewings and hindwings.
