As I have been interested in the study of Lepidoptera in and about Sioux City for a number of years, I am undertaking this paper with great pleasure and with the sincere hope that it may prove of interest to other scientists in the state. My work has been somewhat handicapped by a lack of sufficient literature, and the fact that I have been unable to consult any authority on the order, so I have been careful to omit any species of whose identity I am uncertain. I have followed the classification and terminology used by Doctor Holland in his ''Butterfly Book,'' since it is the most familiar to me, though the light in which some entomologists regard the work warns me that many names may be unfamiliar and perhaps objectionable.
