Phyllonorycter - Phyllonorycter argentifimbriella

Phyllonorycter - Phyllonorycter argentifimbriella
Verona, Augusta County, Virginia, USA
May 12, 2015
this looks to be Phyllonorycter lucidicostella - Lesser Maple Leaf Blotch Miner - Hodges#0765
even at this angle, the markings along the costal margin are discernable.

Moved from ID Request.

P. argentifimbriella
I would go with P. argentifimbriella, because the subcostal line and the short costal dash that it nearly meets apically are dark brown, in contrast with the golden color in the apical area of the wing, whereas in P. lucidicostella, all markings are of the golden color.

I just reviewed another one and I think you are right!

Thanks Ann.
Hopefully Charlie Eiseman or Terry will see this and comment. It would add Virginia to the species record.
