Arthropods: Crustaceans, Insects, and Spiders
How does a butterfly differ from a moth?
|Active-time of day||Day||Night|
|Resting wing position||Vertically above body||Horizontally beside body|
While these guidelines generally hold true, there are exceptions. Moths have hairy bodies, and most have tiny hooks or bristles linking the fore-wing to the hind-wing; butterflies do not have either characteristic.
