This is how I found the dime-sized butterfly.

Is this real? That was my first thought yesterday morning after I saw a dime-sized butterfly “asleep” on a ceramic flower inside the house. I’ve never seen a butterfly this small. It was certainly dead.

I asked for help in identifying the insect from_https://www.butterfliesandmoths.org. An expert said it was a Pieris rapae (small white) and that the size is attributable to “poor quality host plant.” So, that was the scientific explanation, not the mystical one.
