The Yellow Butterfly is a bug that you can collect in all of the Animal Crossing games. It is very similar to the Common Butterfly.


[edit] How to Catch

The Yellow Butterfly can be found flying around anywhere in your town, mostly around flowers and near rivers. This butterfly is very common and you will often see two or three of them flying in a group. To catch a Yellow Butterfly, just equip your net and locate the butterfly. The butterfly will not disappear if you get too close, but it will go in the opposite direction that you are going to try and trick you. Just aim carefully and 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

"Butterflies are covered in "scales" that flake off when touched, eh wot? Blech... The very thought makes my eyebrows itch unbearably... Anyhoo, I suppose that's neither here nor there..."

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

"We call them all yellow butterflies, but many subspecies of this insect exist, wot wot? Indeed, this fact makes them rather interesting to many researchers... What's more interesting to me is why anyone in their proper mind would take interest in these things."

[edit] Real Life

The Yellow Butterfly is known as the Everest Clouded Yellow Butterfly in real life. It is most commonly found in India. It comes from the Pieridae family of butterflies. These butterfly's wings are tipped with black while the rest is yellow. This butterfly is very common, just as it is in the game.
