ID Request - Pseudopyrausta marginalis

Size: apx. 9 mm long
I believe this looks like Hodges #4939.1 Pseudopyrausta marginalis but only Maury Heimann will know. I think it looks like his second, light specimen shown only on MPG. I am posting a second photograph to prove that this one is not out of focus. It seems to sit higher in front than I have noticed with the Pseudopyrausta santatalis.

This specimen has been identified by BOLD at BOLD:ACX2597 and TXLEP064-15

For what it's worth
I tend to agree with Pseudopyrausta marginalis. Have never seen it myself, though.

Thanks for the encouragement, James.
