A Fannish Butterfly is someone constantly flitting from fandom to fandom, as opposed to a Mono-fan who stays with their first fandom for years, or even for life.

The term was created by Michelle Christian during a panel at ZebraCon in 1995, while taking exception to the then-popular term "slash slut" for anyone who had more than two or three fandoms.

Example of usage: Confessions of a Fannish Butterfly, Sandy Herrold's website.
