These images introduce some of our local Crambid Moths (Family Crambidae, Subfamilies Scoparinae, Crambinae [excluding the genus Crambus, which was introduced here on 07 March 2014], Schoenobiinae, Acentropinae, and Glaphyriinae). Note: The subfamily Pyraustinae is excluded here because it was introduced earlier, on 21 March 2014. The collage of 22 images of moths shown here represent 16 genera and 19-21 different species, all of which were found and photographed in either northeastern North Dakota or northwestern Minnesota.
Try to identity some of these moths by matching these images with photographs found on pages 146-147 and 150-165 of the Peterson Field Guide to Moths of Northeastern North America.
