Feralia major, the major sallow, is a moth of the family Noctuidae. The species was first described by John Bernhardt Smith in 1890. It is found from the northeastern parts of the United States west across the southern boreal forest to western Alberta. The exact southern range is uncertain, as populations from the southeastern US south to Texas are brighter blue green and appear to be a separate species.
