Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Butterflies spawned by a statue will disappear into puffs of smoke upon trying to catch them.
  • The spawn rate for Butterflies is decided at random when a day begins. As such, some days will have countless butterflies, while others will have almost none.
  • Keep in mind that Butterfly Jars cannot be uncrafted, thus once you put a butterfly in a jar you cannot use it as Bait for Fishing.
  • On the Console version Console version, you can attempt to plant moonglow seeds on normal mud blocks, and this may spawn a butterfly. This is very likely a bug.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Zebra Swallowtail Butterfly item is the 2000th item to be added to the game, as seen through its Item ID.
