Most butterflies have a chrysalis that hangs downward from the tip of the abdomen from a silken button spun by the caterpillar, but most Swallowtail caterpillars have an upright chrysalis that is also supported by a silken girdle. Your chrysalis looks like a Swallowtail Butterfly chrysalis, but we are not certain of the species.
