Now A. diminuatana (not diminutana)
A. diminuatana Kearfott, 1905 was raised from synonymy with A. diminutana (Haworth, 1811) by Gilligan et al. (2016) (see redescription p. 366 & figs. 39-43 (1)). A. diminutana is now treated as a strictly old world species.

I don't see any examples in BugGuide under A. goodelliana which match perfectly with the rediscription by Gilligan et al. (2016). A. goodelliana has the pale area on the costal margin extending all the way to the apex and "black streaks along the radius and cubitus", figs. 17-22. The streaks can be faint to the point of being nearly obsolete and there appears to be overlap in appearance of the costal margin. There also appears to be overlap in pattern of the sinuous border between the dark and pale areas. Gilligan et al. (2016) mentions the need for dissection for intermediate specimens.
