The Common Butterfly is a bug that you can collect in all of the Animal Crossing games.


[edit] How to Catch

The Common Butterfly is very easy to see and catch, hence its name. Common butterflies are likely to by flying nears flowers and freshwater, but they can also be flying around in grassy areas as well. To catch them, simply equip your net and run up to them. They won't get scared and disappear if you get too close like most bugs do. They will fly away from you, but they are not fast and after you gain a little on them, swing your net.

[edit] Museum Description

If you donate this bug to the Museum, Blathers will say this:

[edit] Animal Crossing

"There's an old saying among some of my contemporaries: "Butterflies are beautiful, yet moths are monstrous." Well, if you were to ask me, I'd say they were all the same! By which I mean disgusting! Truly hoo-rrific, wot wot!"

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

"The common butterfly looks quite innocent, eh wot? Far from it! It's a pest! It is a worldwide cabbage-field ravisher, hoo! I suppose that is rather beside the point, but still, innocent, my foot!"

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

"If one were to look closely at the common butterfly, one might notice that it's covered in fine hairs... But WHY would one look closely?! Blecccch! Creepiness aside, one also gets itchy powder on one's hand by touching them... Not for me, eh wot?"

[edit] Animal Crossing: New Leaf

[edit] Real Life

The Common Butterfly is also known as the Large White in real life. It also goes by the name of the Cabbage White and the Cabbage Butterfly. These butterflies are most commonly found in Europe. All of these butterflies wings are tipped black, and the females have a black dot on each wing as well. They got their nicknames because of the fact that the food that they prefer to eat are greens such as cabbage.
