These photographs introduce selected local Apamea, Brocade, and Borer Moths (Family Noctuidae, Subfamily Noctuinae, Tribes Apameini and Arzamini). Moths shown here represent 12 genera and 28 different species, all of which were found and photographed in northeastern North Dakota or northwestern Minnesota.
Learning to identify moths is a lot like learning to identify birds. See if you can identity some of these moths by carefully matching images shown above with those found on pages 440-461 of the Peterson Field Guide to Moths of Northeastern North America.
