Bob, this is Eucosomini for sure. It looks like a lot of your prior Ragweed Borer photos except for the lack of folds in the tail. The markings along the Costa with the dot near the tail made me think probably Eucosma. I finally came down to in my considerations. What do you think?

 
I'm not sure.
The dark and light band about midwing aren't very pronounced on Pseudexentera cressoniana. I was thinking it could be Gypsonoma salicicolana. The pattern looks similar, but the color might be a little off.

I went to look. You are probably right but a lot of the others didn't look like it to me and as you say the color is quite different - if that matters with all the other variations! I wish Dr. Dombroskie would see this one.
