 A Viceroy butterfly (Limenitis archippus) is a butterfly very similar to the Monarch but is smaller and has subtle differences. Primarily, they have distinct black lines perpendicular to the other black lines on the hindwings. Another notable difference is that the Viceroy doesn't migrate, which the Monarch is popular for. The flight pattern is  also slightly different between the two species.
