Bugs are all over Animal Crossing: New Horizons. The wiggly little creatures come in all shapes and sizes, but one of the rarest ones appears to be the Peacock Butterfly in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. It’s a pretty valuable spawn and is worth quite a few Bells, so it’s worth hunting down.
With this item, you need to do some other work first, your first step involves planting some flowers. The reports coming from the user community suggests that hybrid flowers are the goal, and that the Peacock Butterfly comes from very specific colors.
The colors you want seem to be purple, blue, and black flowers. Each of the flowers requires different combinations of colors. Roses or tulips are the easiest combinations to get, so aim for those. If you want a full guide on making hybrid flowers, here you go. Purple roses can be created by planting a pair of white roses in close proximity. purple tulips are made from two orange tulips.
Once you have the flowers, it’s time to start looking for the little bugger. It sells for 2,500 Bells at the store in your town.
The spawn time is always between 4 a.m. – 7 p.m. and it will vary by hemisphere. March-June (Northern) / September-December (Southern). Check out your Critterpedia if you need to verify this information, although it only populates with information about a bug or fish once you have caught it, still, having the information of when to look for one can be helpful.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons launched last week on March 20 and has found huge success. The game has gained a ton of sales for the Switch console as a result. The Switch and Switch Lite even outsold their launch week in Japan this week, pushing more than 392,000 units. That sales number also helped push the console past the Wii’s lifetime sales in Japan.
