Where to find Rainbow Tipped Butterfly in Palia

What a catch!

One of the nicer aspects of cozy multiplayer online RPG Palia is that while it doesn’t have combat, it makes up for this with the variety of ways it tackles each crafting discipline. Each has its own skill set, whether it is tough to find specimens or tricky maneuvers to catch or make them.

Bug-catching is a good example, with a variety of smoke bombs you can deploy to help catch them and a large range of locations and conditions to find rare specimens. Perhaps the rarest is the Rainbow Tipped Butterfly, so read on if you want to know where to find it in Palia.

At the time of writing, the Rainbow-Tipped Butterfly is generally considered the hardest bug to find and catch in Palia. It only spawns between 3am and 6pm each in-game day and is of epic rarity, meaning it has a low spawn rate. It is also difficult to spot as it appears in the same areas as the more common Blue Butterfly and looks very similar. You’ll find it on hills and cliffs in the southern areas of the Bahari Bay map, such as Hideaway Bluffs, Pavel Mines, and Windy Ruins.

Not only is the Rainbow Tipped Butterfly hard to find it is also hard to catch once you’ve found it. It is advised to use the best smoke bombs you have access to if you want to hunt for them, as proximity to people will make them flee at pace, which I find super frustrating, as you need to get close to them to identify them at all in the first place. Catching one can gain you up to 14 Silk, while they have a sale price of 260 Gold (540 Gold for star quality).

Catching a Rainbow-Tipped Butterfly is required to complete the Kilima and Bahari Bug Collector achievement and the Master Kilima and Bahari Bug Collector achievement. These are particularly sought after as they give Bug Collector’s Display Boxes as part of their rewards.
