Abstract

From 1902–2005, 75 species of Crambidae and 48 species of Pyralidae were collected on Plummers Island, Montgomery County, Maryland. An annotated list of the two families is provided, along with photographs of all recorded species. The Pyraloidea of Plummers Island have wide distributions in eastern United States with some species occurring as far west as Texas and a few others ranging from coast to coast. Hosts recorded in the literature are given, but they are unknown for 36% of the species. The majority of Pyraloidea feed on vascular plants, but hosts are diverse including algae, scale insects, and immatures of wasps, and bagworms.
