Let's reword the question.

"Suppose that there is 1 butterfly species for every X insect species and there are 15,000 to 22,000 species of butterfly worldwide. How many insect species are there?"

Find X and multiply 22,000 times X.

Methinks a duffel bag could hold 503-737 butterflies if they were packed tightly enough . . .

Between 4,925,374 and 7,223,881. Between 4,900,000 and 7,200,000 with correct significant figures.

0 in a few billion years.

If a butterfly becomes trapped in a duffel bag in the forest, does it exist?
