Butterfly Caterpillars

North American Insects

Like Moths, Butterflies are born from a Caterpillar stage.
There are a total of (12) Butterfly Caterpillars in the database. There may be color variations in some caterpillars so body shape is important when attempting to identify a species.

USER TIP: Remove unnecessary insect panels by closing them out. Simply click on the "X" at the top-right of each panel to reduce the results on this page. Identification is an interactive process!
