    Determine gender by their looks and behavior.

    The signs are described here:

    the male is bigger than the female you can reconize it by the size of the black spot on the wing

    does it really matter? the average life expectancy of a butterfly is 10 days. do you really care what sex it is?

    In general, the male butterfly’s antannae will be thicker and fuzzier, but as in all things, this is not written in stone.

    Try getting a book on butterflies or doing a web search. But here’s an example with Tiger swallow tails.

    Male tiger swallow tails are yellow with black stripes on their wings. Females are black with blue stripes or may appear plan black.
