There are too many variations in the colors of the wings and in different species – not to mention undiscovered species. They all have many different colors and color variations with varying degrees of intensity. However, the Painted Lady has many, many colors.
Butterfly wings are covered with scales (that’s the meaning of the word ‘lepidoptera’). Each scale is a single color, most of which are produced by pigments. The iridescence that’s sometimes seen is produced from a reflective microstructure on the surface of the scales.
