This collage of photographs introduces our common local Tiger Moths (Family Erebidae, Subfamily Arctiinae, Tribe Arctiini). Shown here are examples of 14 genera and 18 species, all of which were found and photographed in either northeastern North Dakota or northwestern Minnesota.
Try learning the identity of several of these moths by matching photographs shown here with those found on pages 294-309 of the Peterson Field Guide to Moths of Northeastern North America.
There are many more species of Tiger Moths in North Dakota and Minnesota, and I hope to add photographs of more local species to this subfamily during the summer of 2014.
