Adult butterflies communicate with one another mostly through chemical cues—the males produce chemicals called pheromones to seduce the females. Additionally, a few species communicate with sound. The male Cracker butterfly (Hamadryas) can make loud noises with his wings. Learn more about butterflies at the Butterfly Conservatory.
Autum Leaf Butterfly (Doleschallia bisaltide) making sound by vibrating its wings, there were about 3 of these butterflies making sounds at different points during the day today. I have only known Cracker butterflies (Hamadryas) make a sound so this behavior was surprising to say the least. #lepidoptera #butterfly #insecta #entomology
