Ever wondered what the difference is between butterflies and dragonflies?

They are both classed as insects but belong to different sub-groups: Odonata (dragonflies) and Lepidoptera (butterflies).  Their physical characteristics are very similar; they both have three segments (head, thorax and abdomen), compound eyes, two pairs of wings and six legs.  However the following main differences distinguish them :

  • LIFE CYCLE  Butterflies have a four phase life cycle and breed mainly on plants on land; dragonflies only have three phases and breed on plants in or near water.
  • MOUTH PARTS  Butterflies have a proboscis (tongue like appendage) and can only drink nectar, whereas dragonflies have teeth like appendages and prey on flying insects (including butterflies…).
  • WINGS  Butterflies have beautifully colored wings and are relatively slow flyers (a maximum of 30 miles an hour); whereas dragonflies have transparent wings and can perform amazing aerobatics at speed, with some species flying up to 90 miles per hour.
