List of moths of North America Wikipedia
North American moths represent about 12,000 different types of moths. In comparison, there are about 825 species of North American butterflies. The moths (mostly nocturnal) and butterflies (mostly diurnal) together make up the taxonomic order Lepidoptera.
This list is sorted on MONA number (MONA is short for Moths of America North of Mexico). A numbering system for North American moths introduced by Hodges, et al. in 1983 in the publication Check List of the Lepidoptera of America North of Mexico. The list has since been updated, but the placement in families is outdated for some species.
This list covers America North of Mexico (effectively continental United States and Canada). For a list of moths and butterflies recorded from the state of Hawaii, see List of List of Lepidoptera of Hawaii.
