Butterflies and Moths

Parent Category: Insects
To many people they are indistinguishable. There is a difference and this is the place to satisfy you curiosity. Both are class Insecta but the butterfly has a longer smoother antenna and tends to be more colorful. With 165,000 known species, there is room for lots of questions in here.
Spanish moth larvae cause damage by chewing gregariously on leaves,bulbs, and rhizomes of the host plants. Economic damage to liliesby Spanish moth has been noted by Biezanko and Guerra (1975),Bourquin (1935), Bruner et al. (1975), D'Angelo (1941), Figeiredoand Pereira (1944), Gundlach (1881),...
No, but they are hosts to certain protozoans, such as Ophryocystis elektroscirrha , which affects onlybutterflies. The monarch has a species defense against predators,which are toxic glycosides found in some parts of its body -- theseare unpalatable to predators.
They are just called eggs, what hatches from them are called larvaor larvae.
They look like they are wet. Their wings are saggy. Butterfliestake time to let their wings dry out so they can fly.
antennas, eyes, mouth. If that didn't answer your question look upbutterfly anatomy :)
It depends on how long it lives, but an efficient flower sometimescreates a few hundred joules a day. That's about 50 calories, butthe plant eats most of these for itself.
no they are orange with black polkadots the caterpillers are yellow, back, white, and kind of a limy green stripes!
what do butterflies hear with
they have huge eyes covering 3/4 their face and are very fuzzy
They are called the blue morpho butterfly because the top ofthe wings are blue. However, the bottom of the wings are brown withspots, so when they fly, they seem to disappear and appear, givingthem a morphing effect.
Because they like the light and there is no light in therainforest.
Well, the truth is, I'm trying to figure out the answer for that question myself. Some names that have crossed my mind are Eartha, Teresa, Crick (which means crooked), Parsley (a type of leaf that black swallowtail caterpillars eat), or Skype (I just think it's an interesting name).
Energy from the sun strikes green plants. These green plants,through the process known as photosynthesis, capture some of thatenergy, and store it in the chemical compound known as glucose.Caterpillars eat the leaves therefore the energy in that leaf goesinto their bodies.
All true caterpillars turn into butterflies or moths. There are many other critters that resemble caterpillars, such as sawfly larvae and hoverfly larvae, that are not caterpillars.
It sits in the caterpillar's body, slowly building up in the formof string proteins.
A butterfly comes out of a pupa or chrysalis.
Caterpillars walk by lifting and compressing the body between thelast two pairs of legs, then moving the last pair of legs forward

Most monarch butterflies do not live more than a few weeks. Thereare about 3 to 5 generations born each spring and summer and mostof the offspring do not live beyond 5 weeks. The lone exception isthe last generation born at the end of the summer. The last generation of each year is the over...
Some are completely without Southport and do not eat at all. They live long enough to mate and lay eggs then die.
No, they are competitors.
perhaps no!!!\ncaterpillars are not popular in every mouse's taste...\n
no, the wings do not grow back, but can be repaired. please see www.livemonarch.com
The caterpillar is probably preparing to build a cocoon arounditself. It must first store up energy, and weeks later, it willemerge as a butterfly.
It is one way to change from a larva (like a caterpillar) into an adult imago (like a butterfly).
I think someone messed up and instead of saying flutter-by , they said butterfly
Caterpillars are the offspring of butterflies.
It depends on the species. Most caterpillars are herbivores however, there are some specieswhich are carnivorous (one, the chalk hill blue, feeds on ants)
It is probably a yellow striped army worm , but the colors may vary. I found green, brown-gray, brown, and black. the way they eat the ferns is they attach themselves onto the stem and suck. I've collected over 20, but they died soon after. Just simply pull the caterpillars off, but don't squeeze...
ANSWER: . No. It's an insect.
The butterfly's pupa stage is spent inside a cocoon

I came across a micro world in a hollow tree stump. Minute toadstools, plants etc. And moths the size of a pin head, that did not venture out into the larger world.
The size of a fingernail.
First a note: it is actually the larvae of moths that eat your sweaters, not the adults. Most experts seem to say that moth larvae only eat "natural "fibers, ie. wool, cashmere, silk, angora, etc. If your rayon or other synthetic is blended with wool, as many are, the larvae will eat the wool...

In Joshua Tree National Park, the yucca moth ( Tegeticula paradoxa ) visits the Joshua tree blossom at night, rolls the pollen into a ball, flies to another flower, and ascends the pistil to force the pollen ball into the tubular stigma. Using her ovipositor, the moth then lays 4-5 eggs within the...

The scientific name for the Corsican swallowtail butterfly is Papilio hospiton .
Most caterpillars are herbivores. Some species are omnivores because they eat other insects. yes it is. it eats plants only.
They run small, in my opinion. :)
This means you have butterflies making a cocoon and getting set for a long and cold winter, i strongly suggest that you leave them there, and if they don't seem to be making anything like crystals/silk in the next few months, then put them outside, or if you like to keep them as a pet- research what...
Wings, beaks and feet are a birds special tools. You can tell where a bird lives and how it gets food by these special adaptations. Birds have hollow bones and they make uric acid instead of urine, this removes excees water more efficiently to save water wieght. their feathers are an adaptation of...

Yes, you can move a cocoon without harming the insect inside. Use atoothpick to disconnect the cocoon at the top and move to a saferplace.
you can find caterpillars all over the world in gardens rain forests special bug zoos the list is endless the places to find poisonous caterpillars would be in rain forests such as Brazil and the Amazon.
The Monarch caterpillar eats only milkweed. Other caterpillars ofdifferent types eat leafy plants. They eat the leaves of fruit andflowering plants.

As far as I know, somebody has landed a 1080. There was a snowboarder (can't remember his name) who did it on television. And for skateboarders, I was reading articles and I think it was actually Tony Hawk who landed a 1080... Please correct me if I'm wrong, but this is just from what I've heard.
Yes it odes, but not as a moth, it comes as a caterpillar.
They have one full generation of moths in a year, if that helps. There's nothing on this...
