All fish & insects in September + all marine animals

Autumn is approaching in great strides: In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, there are still a few new butterflies to catch in September before the colorful fluttering men run away on your island. With a total of eight new additions to fish and insects as well as three new marine animals, you will again have enough to do this month to fill your museum and the faunapedia. If you haven't already played Animal Crossing: New Horizons in March, you will also have the opportunity to catch some of the species for the first time from September. If you've been there from the start, you probably already know some of the new animals in September.

You won't miss any loot with our list! It is divided into the categories of marine animals, insects and fish, and also divided into three parts: new creatures, already known creatures that will be on your island this month, and all animals that populate your island all year round. Via the table of contents (fold-out) you can easily click to the section of our guide that interests you. And now good luck with the hunt!

If you are looking for our complete lists, you will find it here: All insects in Animal Crossing, all fish in Animal Crossing and all marine animals in Animal Crossing.

September in Animal Crossing: Insects

Two butterflies, two crickets, a dragonfly and a few more crawlers: more new species arrive on the island in September than last month. You probably already know some of them if you've played New Horizons in the past few months – kettle louse, brimstone butterfly and so on were already available in spring and early summer.

September in Animal Crossing: Fish

Watch out, you can only catch two species of fish this month! In addition to salmon and king salmon, the new water dwellers, pike and woolly crab, are waiting for capable anglers, and animals that were last seen on the island in spring and early summer are returning – including the very valuable golden trout. Also use this month to complete your collection of dorsal fin fish, some of which will be gone by next month.
