there's actually only one that i know of, the feniseca tarquinius/harvester! the large blue butterfly is actually omnivorous, as it feeds on plants in its early life. large blues are actually really fascinating as they're parasites, i recommend reading up on them (a single wikipedia search is enough, it's incredibly interesting)!

There's actually quite a few carnivorous butterflies/moths. This paper is a bit technical, but it's a nice read if you can understand it https://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/page/41142526#page/432/mode/1up
