Homologous organs have different look and perform a completely different function,  however, shares a common basic structure. wing of a butterfly and the wing of a bat performs a similar function but have a different basic structure. wings of a butterfly are membrane supported by muscles and wings of a bat is the body skeleton.

Hence they are not the homologous organ rather analogous organ because they perform the same function.
