Order Lepidoptera - The Butterflies and Moths
The Lepidpotera, which includes the butterflies and moths, are not normally thought of as being aquatic insects. However, there are a few groups with aquatic larvae (caterpillars). Most feed on aquatic vegetation. So far we have come across one Family in North Dakota that has aquatic larvae - the Pyralidae.

General Life cycle - Select Pyralidae from the family list to view information on this family and the two genera we have found.
