Lepidopterology, is a game mechanic added by the Forestry mod. A branch of entomology concerning the scientific study of butterflies and of moths. It is similar to the mechanics of bee breeding. Someone that studies in this field is a Lepidopterist. Butterflies are fairly easy to find as they spawn near [Forestry] trees. A butterfly can be captured with a scoop: it is best to 'sneak' up to them as some are shy and will quickly fly away. 'Right-click' to scoop it up once close enough. To release a butterfly into an enclosure or perhaps out in nature again, just drop it and it will be on its way in a short while.
