This collection of images shows 10 or 11 different species of Grass-veneer Moths (in the genus Crambus) that I’ve photographed in northeastern North Dakota.  There are certainly other species to be found here, and I hope to find and photograph more Crambus species this summer, 2014.  Take a look at pages 146-151 of the Peterson Field Guide to Moths of Northeastern North America

Moth Book

or click on the link below (that shows images of Crambus archived on the Moth Photographers Guide, and then compare these with images shown above.  How many different Crambus species can you find?
