These six photographs introduce our local Tent Caterpillar and Lappet Moths (Family Lasiocampidae).  Images shown here represent three genera and four species, all of which were found and photographed in northeastern North Dakota.

Try to identity some of these moths yourself by matching these photographs with those found on pages 246-249 of the Peterson Field Guide to Moths of Northeastern North America.
