A butterfly is a non-solid block that likes flowers and bright areas.

There are 3 butterfly species:

Name Itemstring

Violet Butterfly.png Violet Butterfly butterflies:butterfly_violet
White Butterfly.png White Butterfly butterflies:butterfly_white



Butterflies are generated near to flowers.

Appearing and disappearing

When it is dark, the butterfly disappears but it is not truly gone. When the light returns, the butterfly will quickly re-appear at the same spot, as long the block it “lived” in has not been tampered with.


A butterfly can be catched with a bug net and be placed again somewhere else. And that's it.
