Identifying errors in Maya uv texture editor

I am unwrapping a simple object and need some help. user added image
In my texture editor i turned on "shaded uv display" so i can see where my errors are. I know blue means everything is good but other colors? I want to know what the other colors mean and if there is an error, like I think there are a lot in my pic, then how do i locate them?

You can click on one UV vertex, Select>Select Shell, then move it.

It's the same thing. The purple color is caused by the alpha of the blue and/or red components.
