Butterfly Wing is an ingredient in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It can be used to make potions at an alchemy lab as part of Alchemy.


  • 2 wings are gained from harvesting Monarch Butterflies.
  • There is a place where many can be found. The Blue Palace is built over an island. At the far west point of that island is a little encampment among some unnamed standing stones. Many monarch and blue butterflies spawn there. It is west-northwest of Folgunthur.
  • An abundance of Butterflies can be found at Autumnshade Clearing.
  • Wherever there are flowers (Lavender, Tundra Cotton, etc.) there are bound to be some butterflies on or near the flowers.
  • Sometimes for sale by Alchemist's shops.
  • Can be found in Apothecary's Satchels.
  • Small chance to appear on Falmer.
  • One behind the Alchemy Station in Alftand.

  • The harvested Butterfly Wings are different from those on the Monarch Butterfly; the wings on the butterfly itself are pointed the wrong way, while the harvested ingredient are situated the right way.
  • The Monarch Butterfly Wings in the game have "swallowtails," a feature that the real-world Monarch Butterflies do not have.
