Butterfly or Moth?

How good are you at telling apart your butterflies and moths? You might be able to recognise one when you see one but what about telling them apart from their common names?

All you have to do in this game is work out which of the names belong to a butterfly and which belong to a moth. You then have to drag and drop the names into the right container.
