Papilionoidea

5 records

The members of the Papilionoidea may be distinguished by the following combination of characters:

  • The body is smaller and less moth-like.
  • The wings are larger.
  • The antennae are straight and clubbed (rather than hooked as in the skippers).
  • The caterpillars do not spin cocoons to pupate.
  • The pupae are angular rather than rounded.
