Moth Count: 3 Families, 4 Genera, 5 Species
Look for these moths in the Red River Valley during March. Below I list families, genera, and species of moths (as “Hodges Numbers” for locating species images found in the online MPG or Moth Photographer’s Guide).
Click on underlined or Boldface Hodges Numbers (e.g. 0436) to view living images (and maps) for moth species archived on the MPG. Dates (e.g., 05/27) and locations indicate the date and location of the first observation for 2015.
The format for moths shown below follows the format found in the Peterson Field Guide to Moths of Northeastern North America, by David Beadle and Seabrooke Leckie (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2012 – ISBN 978-0-547-23848-7). This is a highly recommended book for North Dakota and Minnesota moth-watchers. PS: If you are on Facebook, check out the group ‘Moths and Moth-watching’.
