Carrier butterflies were a species of butterfly native to the planet Maridun. They were .42 meters long, roughly the size of a Human hand. Possessing the ability to vocalize and repeat instructions, carrier butterflies were kept by the Lurmen colonists who settled on the planet during the Clone Wars for use as pets and communications.
They were able to recognize commands from their masters, fly to specific locations or people and then repeat lengthy audio messages. They offered a slow but secure means of long-range communication due to the near impossibility of intercepting a specific butterfly in the wild.
