–In-Game Item Description

Bug Catching


The Rainbow-Tipped Butterfly can be found between the hours of 3:00 AM - 6:00 PM throughout the fields and cliffs of southern Bahari Bay, including Pulsewater Plains, Hideaway Bluffs, and above the Pavel Mines.

Confirmed Catch D9 - Left of Mine entrance on the cliff at 9:00 AM.


The Rainbow-Tipped Butterfly is quite possibly the most difficult Epic Bug to find, in part because of its low spawn rate but also because of how well it blends in with the nearby Common Blue Butterflies. The Rainbow-Tipped Butterfly can only be differentiated by its white body and the prismatic tips of its wings.

The Rainbow-Tipped Butterfly is alerted by nearby player movement and Smoke Bombs and will attempt to flee. It does not stop moving once startled and is quite fast, so one strategy players can employ is using Sticky Smoke Bombs to slow it down.

The Rainbow-Tipped Butterfly is quite elusive, and may take dozens of Smoke Bombs to successfully catch. For this reason, it is a prime candidate for the 100% Catch Rate Supreme Smoke Bombs.

Players should also be conscious of the fact that the Rainbow-Tipped Butterfly will disappear shortly after 6:00 PM, even if the player is actively attempting to catch it. Because of this fact, it is recommended that players searching for a Rainbow-Tipped Butterfly do so in the morning hours or early in the day.


In addition to the bug, Rainbow-Tipped Butterfly grants 0 - 14 Silk Thread when caught.


Starred versions of this bug can be placed as a decor.

Terrarium size: 3x3 (Small, Rectangular)
