Wednesday, June 10th, 2020 11:22 am

Here's when you can catch this pretty insect!

From locusts and spiders to butterflies and beetles, there are lots of different insects available to catch in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. One of these critters is the Madagascan sunset moth, and it’s now appearing on islands in the Northern Hemisphere.

Specifically, players with islands in the Northern Hemisphere can catch the Madagascan sunset moth from April to September. According to All Gamers, players with islands in the Southern Hemisphere can find this insect from October to March.

Unlike the moth and atlas moth in New Horizons, the Madagascan sunset moth doesn’t come out at night. Instead, this moth can be found from any time between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.

At first glance, a Madagascan sunset moth may look similar to the peacock butterfly, since they both have mostly dark green coloring. However, you can tell the two apart by looking for the white coloring near the rear of the Madagascan sunset moth, which the peacock butterfly doesn’t have.

In our gameplay clip below, we allowed the Madagascan sunset moth to fly around for a bit before catching it so that you can see that white coloring.

The Madagascan sunset moth can be sold for 2,500 Bells at Nook’s Cranny, making it a fairly valuable insect. And remember, you can earn even more Bells if you sell these creatures to Flick when he visits your island.
