The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess Game Guide

Golden Bug List [gold]
Note that this is only a partial list, as I have not yet found half of them. 
Once I find the rest, I will add them in, but until then, please let me know 
where they are if you have any I do not. Again, they are listed in the order 
in which I found them. What do you get out of finding these bugs? When you 
give them to Agitha(she lives in Hyrule Castle Town), she will hand over a Big 
Wallet for the first one. For every subsequent insect you give here, she will 
give you 50 rupees, unless you give her one that completes a male/female pair. 
In that case, she gives you 100 rupees instead. Once you have given her all 
24, she will give you the largest wallet size, which holds 1000 rupees.

1. Female Ant- Kakariko Village
In the empty house to the left of Barnes's Bomb shop, check on the floor. The 
female ant is right in the middle of the floor.

2. Male Ant- Kakariko Village
Check the trees in the back end of the Graveyard. A Male Ant will be sitting 
on the bottom of one of them.

3. Male Grasshopper- Hyrule Field, Eldin Province
Exit Kakariko Village to the northeast, then head northwest as you enter 
Hyrule Field. There is a large brown grass-free expanse of land here, the Male 
Grasshopper is hopping around here. You'll likely have to bring him to you 
with the Gale Boomerang.

4. Male Butterfly- Hyrule Field, Lanayru province
Leave Hyrule Castle Town via the east entrance and go a little bit southeast. 
You'll find a patch of pink flowers, the Male Butterfly is in there. He's 
probably just having breakfast or something...

5. Male Matis- Hyrule Field, Lanayru province
Check the north end of the Great Bridge of Hylia. he's flying around and
enjoying the sunlight. Use your Gale Boomerang to get him.(Thanks to
Mario Di Teodoro for this one)

Check a rocky arch south of the Great Bridge of Hylia(where the Chus drop 
from). She is on a wall near there, so gale Boomerang her down.

7. Female Dragonfly- Zora's River
This one is right in front of the canoe rental cabin. You can't miss it, but 
you will have to use your Gale Boomerang or Clawshot to get it close to you 
and pick it up.

8. Female Butterfly- Hyrule Field, Lanayru province
Warp to Hyrule Castle Town and check the same area as where you got the Male

cliff, Clawshot up to it and get the Female Butterfly.

9. Male Stag Beetle- Hyrule Field, Lanayru province
Go to the area of Hyrule Field directly north of Hyrule Castle. Check a tree 
near the east entrance to this area for the Male Stag Beetle. You'll have to 
Clawshot it down.

10. Female Phasmid- Hyrule Field, Bridge of Eldin

You can Clawshot or Gale Boomerang it down.

12. Male Dragonfly- Zora's Domain

Child Rocks, the Male dragonfly is hanging around.

13. Male(or possibly female) Snail- Sacred Grove
During your second trip to the Sacred Grove, when you push the block down to 
gain access back the where the Master Sword was, check to the left of where 
the block fell. The Male Snail should be on the wall in a dark little corner.

14. Female(or possibly male) Snail- Sacred Grove
Once you go into the Temple of Time(but before you enter the dungeon proper), 
check the left side of the stairs for the Female Snail.
