What is a baby butterfly called?

There is no such thing as a baby butterfly, they are born as adults. here is the way it works. A Butterfly lays eggs, these eggs hatch into caterpillar's, the caterpillars seal themselves into pupa or chrysalis inside of which they grow into an adult butterfly, when the time is right an adult butterfly breaks out of the pupa/chrysalis a lot like a chick coming from an egg and you have an adult butterfly ready to mate with other butterfly's that lay eggs once again. The closest thing to a baby butterfly will be the Caterpillar.
