For those of you who have issues differentiating butterflies from moths and vice versa, this individual will NOT help you at all….
Members of the small Callidulidae family of moths, even up close, bear striking similarities to butterflies. They are day-flying, flit from leaf to leaf with their wings held upright and even have the patterned eyes of butterflies.
You might ask then, what separates them from butterflies? Grossly, the giveaway in this instance is the “unknobbed” antennae, characteristic of the butterflies.
