Butterflies were flying insects that sported two pairs of large, brilliantly-colored wings. The planet Maridun was notably home to the carrier butterflies, who were often used as messengers. A species of blue-winged butterflies could be found on the Forest Moon of the planet Endor. The planet Sriluur also hosted another species of butterfly.
