Moths and butterflies are both insects that belong to the Lepidoptera order. However, there is a distinct difference between them. Moths are generally nocturnal, while butterflies are more active during the day. Moths also have wider, hairier bodies, while butterflies have a slimmer, smoother frame. Furthermore, moths usually have a less vibrant colour palette than butterflies. Many moths have earthy tones, such as brown, grey, and white, while butterflies come in many different colours. Additionally, moths have antennae with a feathery or saw-like appearance, while butterflies have antennae with a club-like shape. Finally, moths tend to be attracted to light, while butterflies are less likely to be.
