Hypen 1Hypen 2 Hypen 4Hypen 3

These photographs introduce our local Snout Moths (Family Erebidae, Subfamily Hypeninae).  Moths shown here represent four different species and one genus, all found and photographed in northeastern North Dakota or northwestern Minnesota.   

See if you can identity these moths by matching images shown here with those found on pages 322-327 of the Peterson Field Guide to Moths of Northeastern North America.

  1. Thanks for posting these photos. I just saw one here in South Dakota and you helped me identify its subfamily.
