Allow BugFinder to help you identify your particular Butterfly, Moth, or like-insect through a series of easy-to-use drop-downs.

BUGFINDER BUTTERFLIES & MOTHS: What Kind of Butterfly or Moth is It?...
Color 1:
Color 2:

BUGFINDER: BUTTERFLIES & MOTHS is our in-house search form that allows you to quickly peruse the Insect Identification database by selecting PRIMARY and SECONDARY colors of your Butterfly or Moth and the STATE / PROVINCE you saw the insect in. This tool can sometimes be more useful than perusing our list pages manually. Remember that if only one color is present on your insect (for example 'BLACK'), select it for both PRIMARY and SECONDARY colors. Also note that the more accurate details you can offer the form above, the better your chances of finding a close (or exact) match of your Butterfly or Moth will be. Unless your specimen is missing any of its legs, your Butterfly or Moth will have six total legs.
