Help me Win This Argument


I walked outside earlier and saw this insect on our screen, I hollered (yes im country, i holler lmao) for Jeff to come look at it, I told him it was a cute little black butterfly on our screen. He comes out and goes...."that's NOT a butterfly, its a MOTH" Soooooo he even went inside and googled black moth and told me to come look, which i did and it didn't look anything like it! So I told him to google black butterfly, and a picture identical to the butterfly come up. He still insists its a moth.


So tell me....Moth or Butterfly??

I'm thinking butterfly. Moths have this ick factor about them, butterflies don't.

I'm with Erin moths have an ick factor. I'd say butterfly. LOL

So my husband and I just had this debate last week...the diff, you ask? Butterflies are active during the day; moths are active at night. Typically, butterflies have brighter coloring, while their moth counterparts are more drab. And the other distinguishing factor...the shape of their body - butterflies have a straight, narrow body and moths' bodies are more curved. Aren't you impressed with all this useless entomology knowledge?

I have had this conversation before too! I think yours is probably a butterfly.

According to this website http://butterflywebsite.com/faq.cfm#q13
"A good way to tell the difference is by their antennae. Butterfly antennae are shaped somewhat like a golf club, with a long shaft. Most moths have either simple filaments tapering to a point, or complicated affairs with many cross-filaments."

Also, according to this site: http://www.uksafari.com/mothorbfly.htm
"One way to tell moths and butterflies apart is to watch them when they are resting. Most butterflies rest with their wings held together above their back, while the majority of moths rest with their wings folded flat."

So based on that, I think your bug is a butterfly. (sorry for the long comment, I wanted you to have facts to throw back haha)
