Local Thyatirid and Scoopwing Moths…

Dep 1Dep 2B Dep 2Dep 3 These images introduce selected examples of our local Thyatirid and Scoopwing Moths (Families Depranidae and Uraniidae).  The four images shown here represent three genera and three different species of moths.  These specimens were found and photographed in northeastern North Dakota.  Once you know where to look in the field guide, these moths are not difficult to identify. 

See if you can identify these moths by matching these images with those found on pages 176-179 of the Peterson Field Guide to Moths of Northeastern North America.  Moth Book Click on the two links below to find other living images of North American Depranidae and Uraniidae archived in the Moth Photographer’s Guide
