So a new limited time dragon has been added to DragonVale, namely the Butterfly dragon. I see this is a tri-combination dragon using Air, Lightning and Fire. With the last few dragons however simply matching these elements has proven to not be effective. What is a good combination of dragons to produce this type of dragon?

I would add a "and how do I know I have one" because it is always interesting to know the incubation time. –  EBongo May 11 '12 at 2:39

To breed a butterfly dragon, on the right side, put the firefly dragon, and in the left, the sonic dragon to get the butterfly dragon.

Popular combinations:

  • Firefly Dragon + Air dragon
  • Firefly Dragon + Sonic dragon

You need to be level 14.

Breeding butterfly dragon takes place in a normal breeding cave or on the breeding island.

Breeding time: 12 hours

The answers from @Arremer and @EBongo below contain vital information so I can not accept one over the other, to that end here is that information combined:

A specific addition from @EBongo

Firefly is a requirement

It has been confirmed multiple places that one Firefly dragon is a requirement to breed this dragon. So your options are Firefly + Air or Firefly + Air Hybrid. For Air Hybrids, Sonic and Blazing have both been reported to work. They are probably best, since they do not introduce any new elements.

Blazing and firefly worked for me first try but then could not duplicate result a second time –  user25582 May 18 '12 at 13:06

As a footnote, I got both of mine from Firefly + Air, at the EBI. –  EBongo May 16 '12 at 20:39
