Dark Brown Moth Mystery - Hypenula cacuminalis

Dark Brown Moth Mystery - Hypenula cacuminalis
Camp Wood, Edwards County, Texas, USA
August 7, 2013
Size: apx. 13 mm FW length
I have photographed 8 different moths that I think are this same species. ALL of them have white dots at the edges of the yellow reniform spot. Most of them have a dark diffuse medial line that runs just under the reniform spots. The less worn specimens have white in their ST and PM lines and they all have a dark jagged AM line. They have a dark hind wing. I think they probably are Hodges 8376, the Long-horned Owlet. I don't think they look like which was identified for me as a Smokey Tetanolito. Is this ID correct?
