My legs are long as hell and I play lots of butterfly.
Butterfly is awesome for both short and long legs.

Yep. Best example I could think of.

Robson Moura is another small guy who has some instructional material on butterfly guard, though I don't recall seeing him play it much in competition.

Bruno is the best example.

Leo Santos also a great example, though he is 155 pounds ... not sure if that qualifies as small in your book but it does in mine.

Pretty cool match here with some butterfly action.
