These images introduce selected examples of our local Olethreutine Moths (Family Tortricidae, Subfamily Olethreutinae).  The 40 moth images shown here represent 15 genera and 38-40 different species, all of which were found and photographed in northeastern North Dakota.

Try to identity several of these moths by matching them with images shown on pages 106-125 of the Peterson Field Guide to Moths of Northeastern North America.  This is hard work!  Good luck!  Moth Book Click on this link to the Moth Photographer’s Guide to find images of these and many, many other examples of North American Olethreutine Moths:    http://mothphotographersgroup.msstate.edu/fast.php?plate=08.0&size=l&sort=h
