    The weight of a particular butterfly will vary based on its species, size and gender. However, in general, butterflies each weigh about .0001 ounce. That’s about 2.83 milligrams. To give you an idea, a single penny weighs about 2.5 grams according to the US Mint. That means it would take about a thousand butterflies to equal the weight of a single penny!
