Moved to Walshia miscecolorella
Moved from Chrysopeleiinae.

It looks like there is a row of raised scales along the outer margin similar to Tom's DNA tested example. I think it's safe to move to species.

 
Thank you
for the correction and placement. I think I looked at both but though the proportion of the black of the head to the white was better for my choice and it had more MPG sightings in Texas. I can see from the side view of mine and Bob Patterson's on MPG that you are correct.

Sorry I posted to species in error!

Moved

Cosmopterigid
Pretty sure this is a Cosmopterigid. It looks like Walshia miscecolorella to me but not sure how to eliminate other possibilities in related genera so moving to subfamily.
