Tears of the Kingdom Smotherwing Butterfly Locations
The Smotherwing Butterfly lives around volcanic regions. Specifically, it can be found around Death Mountain. This area has the highest concentration of them in the entire game, though they can also sometimes be found in Eldin Canyon as well. We have marked the locations where Smotherwing Butterflies reside in the screenshot featured below. And if you don’t want to go hunting for them, you can purchase them from Beedle, who sells Smotherwing Butterflies at the East Akkala and Wetland Stables. A good tactic – not just for the Smotherwing Butterfly, but in general, is to buy a creature that you want to farm from a trader that sells it, then release it, and take a picture of it. This way, you can then use your sensor to detect when it is nearby.
