An asterisk indicates that the beginning or end date for appearance is about the 15th of that month.

Trivia[edit]

  • With sufficient dedication and good timing, it is possible to complete New Leaf's Bug Encyclopedia in as little as 165 days (5 months, 1 week, and 5 days) if beginning on the last day of June (6/30, the final appearance of the Firefly) and ending on the first day of snow coverage (12/11, the initial appearance of the Dung Beetle). Every other specimen is available at least one time in between these dates, and there are no particular bugs exclusive to the months of January through May.


Don't you think so Mayor? To-do list: Edit this page & make some improvements!
This article could use a little something to make it just right.
  • Replace the New Leaf bug images with their corresponding HHD Icon (e.g. Common Butterfly HHD Icon.png).
  • Add information on rarity, average size, and peak times with info from Liquefy's guide. For bugs with no peak times use a dash "-".
  • Verify existing time, month and location information in the table with data from Liquefy's guide.
