Moths are insects that are closely related to butterflies and both belong to the Order of Lepidoptera. The difference between a butterfly and a moth is more than a taxonomy. Sometimes the name Rhopalocera is used for butterflies while Heterocera is used for moths to formalize their differences. Much effort has been made to divide the order of Lepidoptera into groups such as Microlepidoptera. The failure of this name to remain in the modem classification because none of the classification represents a pair of monophyletic groups. In fact, the butterfly is a small group that emerges from moths. These insects usually appear at night and often in groups while the butterflies appear during the day.
