Archips Leafrollers are small moths, usually about a centimeter in length. They are in the Family Tortricidae, and are very similar to the Tortrix Leafrollers that were featured earlier on this site. The 18 Archips Leafrollers shown here represent 8 genera and at least 16 common species found in northeastern North Dakota and northwestern Minnesota. I hope to catch and photograph many more species of local Archipini this summer, 2014.
Try to identify the moths in the photographs above by matching them with images found on pages 96-102 in the Peterson Field Guide to Moths of Northeastern North America.
