When either donating to the museum or selecting "Tell me more about this!", Blathers the curator will say (with abhorrence):
"The common bluebottle is a type of swallowtail butterfly with a bright blue line running down its wings. They fly quite nimbly, it seems, and are thus quite difficult to catch. But seeing as how they've been known to slurp nutrients from MUD puddles... I simply CAN'T imagine wanting to catch one myself. What awful breath!"
The bug can be found in the butterfly room of the bug exhibit, flying during the day and resting on flowers at night.
