Moths shown here represent a collage of Spring Quakers, Woodlings, Woodgrains and Large Arches, all of which are placed in the Family Noctuidae and the Subfamily Noctuinae.  I reckon these images may represent 14 genera and 16 species that are commonly observed in northeastern North Dakota and northwestern Minnesota.

A few of these Noctuid moths are particularly challenging to identify!  See if you can identify a few of these moths by matching them with images found on pages 480-493 of the Peterson Field Guide to Moths of Northeastern North America
