Lith 1Lith 2 Lith 3Lith 4 Lith 5

These five images introduce our common local Lichen Moths (Family Erebidae, Subfamily Arctiinae, Tribe Lithosiini).  Shown here are examples of  three genera and five species, all of which were found and photographed in northeastern North Dakota.

Spend a few minutes learning the names of these small moths by matching these photographs with images shown on pages 292-295 of the Peterson Field Guide to Moths of Northeastern North America.
