Yellow Guthixian butterfly only appears during certain events and may not be currently found in game.

Yellow Guthixian butterflies could be found during the 2019 Easter event and Spring Festivals since 2021. They occasionally spawn at the compass clue coordinates that appear in elite trails.[1] When caught, players were awarded bonus experience in their lowest skill (the one with the least experience; 6,534 BXP each at level 99) equal to 1.5 times the experience that a green Guthixian butterfly would give and the caught butterfly disappeared in a puff of coloured smoke. Players could catch up to ten yellow Guthixian butterflies each day. Ironman players were able to catch these but would not receive any bonus experience.

In 2019, each butterfly restored 15% of either one's life points, Prayer points, or Summoning points, whichever was the most depleted. If all three points were at or above their maximum, one was randomly selected and temporarily boosted up to 5% above its maximum. Once the daily butterflies had been caught, no more could be caught for these bonuses.

Wearing the butterfly outfit increased the chance of successfully catching a yellow guthixian butterfly to 100%.

While free-to-play players could catch these, they would not receive the stated experience. Memstix, a druid devoted to Guthix located next to the Falador lodestone during the 2019 Easter event, confirmed this by saying only members were granted the experience bonuses.
