Butterflies Easier - Butterflies are thin insects with four large, often bright colored wings. Harder - Butterflies and moths comprise the insect group called Lepidoptera. However, butterflies are different from moths. There are over 15,000 different species (kinds) of butterflies. Rain forests have the most kinds of butterflies; but butterflies live in woodlands, fields, prairies. Some even live on cold mountaintops, while many others live in hot deserts. Butterflies live almost everywhere in the world.

B utterflies
Of all the insects, none elicit pleasure and curiosity more readily than butterflies. Like the abundance of verdant mountains and beaches, butterflies are ever present during one's visit to Costa Rica. There is nowhere one goes, whether a 3,000 meter volcanic summit or the arid plains of Guanacaste where butterflies are not present. Costa Rica is unusually blessed by the diversity of it's butterflies. There exists about 20,000 butterfly species worldwide. Of these, about 1,000 or 5% can be found in Costa Rica.
An Outline of Butterfly Physiology Butterflies are insects. By definition, all insects posses six legs and three body segments: head, thorax and abdomen. The three most salient features of the head are the antennae, the eyes and the proboscis. The antennae are used for balance in flight and olfactory sensation. Butterflies possess fragile wings. The wings can wear easily through normal use. They can also be badly damaged by predators which when attacking the butterfly grab only the wing rather than the body. Despite the loss of even the majority of their wing surface area, a butterfly will continue to be able to fly and navigate. They can do this because of the sense of balance afforded them by their antennae. The antennae are also useful for smell. Female butterflies release pheromones (like a perfume) into the air. The male butterflies of many species can detect the pheromones from as far away as 2 kilometers (over a mile). Depending on the concentration of the pheromones, the male will be able to find the female to mate with her. It's worth noting that some species of moths are sensitive to the presence of the females' pheromones up to five kilometers (about three miles) distant.

12. Where Do Butterflies Come From?
A simple handson look at the life cycle of butterflies.
Ever wonder where a butterfly comes from? It comes from a chrysalis (KRIS-uh-liss) which is also called a pupa. A chrysalis looks like a tiny leathery pouch. You can find one underneath some leaves in the summer.
Here's what you need:
  • Toilet-paper tube
  • Tongue depressor or ice-cream pop stick
  • Heavy paper
  • 6" (150 mm) piece of pipe cleaner, folded in half
  • Markers or crayons
  • Scissors and glue
Here's what you do: Cut out and color a butterfly from the heavy paper. Use any colors, but make both halves look the same. Put a small hole at the top of the butterfly's head. Color the toilet paper tube to look like a chrysalis. (A monarch butterfly's chrysalis is green, but you can use any color.) Take a piece of pipe cleaner and shape it like the letter "V". Put one point through the little hole in the butterfly's head and then twist it to look like antennae. Butterflies use these "feelers" to learn about their environment. Glue the butterfly to one end of the tongue depressor or ice-cream pop stick. Let the glue dry. Curl the butterfly's wings and slide it into the chrysalis.

Butterflies of the Rain Forest
utterflies are among the most beautiful and marvelous creatures in all of nature. Tropical Central and South America is the richest region in the world for butterflies, but they are found in many other places as well. Costa Rica has over 1300 species. A butterfly's life begins with a very tiny egg laid on a leaf. From this develops a larva, the butterfly's caterpillar stage. Eventually, the larva makes a cocoon or chrysalis. Safe inside, it develops into a pupa. Eventually, a beautiful butterfly is released from this container, flying heavenward, fully-developed. What an astounding transformation, from a humble, earth bound worm-like creature to a delicate flying wonder!
The adult usually eventually returns to the very plant or tree trunk where it grew up. There it lays its own eggs and begins the process anew (a 2 to 3 month cycle). Did you know that...
The color in a butterfly's wings does not come from pigment. The color is produced prism-like by light reflected by their transparent wing scales.
Stranger yet, no moth or butterfly eats solid food (though some butterflies drink nectar); some can not even take in moisture.

(c) 1999 Smithsonian Institution. Numbers of species. Due to their bright colors and visits to flowers, butterflies are the most familiar of insects to humans. There are about 17,500 species of butterflies in the world, and around 750 species in the United States. Distinctive characteristics. Butterflies (and moths) are the only group of insects that have scales covering their wings, although some butterflies have reduced scales. They differ from other insects also by their ability to coil up their proboscis. Immatures. Caterpillars are the names given to the larvae of both butterflies and moths. They are usually very distinctive, and in some cases may be identified more easily than the adults. When they are developing, their skin may be shed four or more times, with each molt often changing the coloration and appearance of the caterpillar. They eat voraciously to transform plant material into tissues that they will need for metamorphosis. Plant associations.

Personal Notices The North American Butterfly Association (NABA) is, by far, the largest group of people in North America (Canada, United States, and Mexico) interested in butterflies. We are a membership-based not-for-profit organization working to increase public enjoyment and conservation of butterflies. We are working to save butterfly species throughout North America (recent grants have helped the endangered Schaus' Swallowtail in Florida and contributed to developing a long term survival plan for Monarchs) and developing educational programs about butterflies for schools and park rangers and naturalists. NABA has convinced the U.S. Army to conduct further studies before implementing a plan that would destroy the last known colony of Regal Fritillaries east of the Mississippi River. Our publications are changing the way people view butterflies, teaching them how to find butterflies, how to identify them, how to create successful butterfly gardens, and how to photograph them. Your involvement with butterflies will help to bring beauty and satisfaction to your life.
