Butterfly only refer to the tail structure, short form calling. The actual should be called as Butterfly Tail Dragon eyes.

Like Ranchu, butterfly also got top and side view. This was started a few years ago and a group of hobbyists bring the top view to the world attention right at Great World City, Singapore. you know who liao lor.

A major different is the tail, of course. Butterfly tail must be broad, well spread. A good top view butterfly can spread from near the eyes downward. Look at my avatar (paisey ...). A side view butterfly will never have such spread when view from top, also the tail lack the structure to hold up firmly. But a top view butt seldom look nice from side, a side view rarely looks good from top.

Thanks, Bro Matrix. I thought these one also a top view butterfly, although not as good as the one in your avatar. So these are ordinary Moors/dragon eyes?

Matrix, what do you think about this one? Side view or top view? I prefer to appreciate it from top.
