Danaus plexippus, the monarch butterfly, is a well-known member of the milkweed butterfly family (subfamily Danainae, order Lepidoptera) and is distinguished by its enormous size, its orange and black wings, and its extensive yearly migrations.
Although they are more common in North, Central, and South America, monarchs may also be found rarely, in Australia, Hawaii, India, and other places.
