Both butterflies and moths belong to the insect group Lepidoptera. The word "Lepidoptera" means "scaly wings" in Greek. This name perfectly suits these beauties because their wings are covered with thousands of tiny scales overlapping in rows. The scales, which are arranged in colorful designs unique to each species, are what gives the butterfly its beauty.
