Can anyone tell me what this blue Pennsylvania mint is? As distinctive as it is, I can't find it in any of my wildflower books. Thanks.

Looks like Ajuga...Ajuga reptans?

Commonly known as bugle, blue bugle, bugleherb, bugleweed, carpetweed, carpet bugleweed, common bugle,

My plant, that I think is Ajuga reptans, is different enough I wonder about this ID.
The flowers match well enough that I don't doubt it is Ajuga and don't doubt it is one of the varieties commonly called "blue bugle". I just wonder if it is one of the other Ajuga "blue bugle".
