There's no defining feature between the two to my knowledge, just multiple species within lepidoptera order.

Having a quick look online at the latest studies show butterflies as a monophyletic group, i.e. one common ancestor. so they are a distinct group.

Love is like a moth
As soft and gentle as a cloth
The multicolored moods of love are like its satin wings
Love makes your heart feel strange inside
It flutters like soft wings in flight
Love is like a moth, a rare and gentle thing

I feel it when you're with me
It happens when you kiss me
That rare and gentle feeling that I feel inside
Your touch is soft and gentle
Your kiss is warm and tender
Whenever I am with you I think of moths
Love is like a moth
The multicolored moods of love are like its satin wings
Love makes your heart feel strange inside
It flutters like soft wings in flight
Love is like a moth, a rare and gentle thing

Your laughter brings me sunshine
Everyday is spring time
And I am only happy when you are by my side
How precious is this love we share
How very precious, sweet and rare
Together we belong like daffodils and moths

butterfly effect is the sensitive dependence on initial conditions in which a small change in one state of a deterministic nonlinear system can result in large differences in a later state

"moth effect" is a myth in one sense and reality in another. The idea that drivers may steer off the road when they fixate flashing lights is likely correct, but they are not drawn to the lights like moths to a flame.

moth kisses: Kissing someone with your eyebrows in a sporadic motion similar to the flying pattern of a moth. Similar to butterfly kisses which are done with the eyelashes.

A bloody big moth.

Moths aren't really drawn to a flame either. They're attempting to navigate by it.

Unless moths are just dumb butterflies who were not smart enough to avoid detection, or even worse had blame deflected onto them by those damned butterflies.

No... Mozambique has night-time butterflies that feed on nectar from a flower that open during the night.
