Butterfly life lingo may seem  pretty complicated because the different stages of development also known as  metamorphosis have several names. 

First, there is the Egg. Usually, only called Egg. These are tiny, like the head of a pin, and there are a lot of them. The female deposits them on a very specific kind of leaf that her babies like to eat. These plants are called Host plants.

Second, there is the Caterpillar which is sometimes called the Larva. These get quite large from eating the host plants. 

Third, there is the Pupa. Sometimes called Chrysalis. This is a kind of hibernation where the 'ugly duckling' gets redone structurally to become the 'swan'.

Fourth, there is the Adult, which we usually call by name. Hey! There goes a Monarch or, Look! there goes a pretty Butterfly!
