From Southeastern Michigan (the suburbs of Detroit), Glitterflies are small, unknown types of butterflies.

Appearance & DescriptionEdit

Glitterflies are small, with dark bodies and orange, yellow-dotted wings. The undersides of their wings are pale that seem to sparkle with glitter.


Respected Cryptozoologist Karl Shuker suggested they could be Atlas Moths, which are "Asian, but are commonly bred in captivity on account of their spectacular appearance and size. Their markings are variable, and the tips of their forewings are semi-transparent, so that in certain lights they glitter." On another occasion, he said, "Also, they are powerful fliers, so it could have travelled quite a distance away from its original escape locality." Others suggest they are a new species of butterfly.
