Thanks for your comment, Ann.
Thanks for your comment, Ann. My thinking was that I thought I could see a faint dark orbicular spot near the AM line, a small dark area where a reniform spot might be located, a white area over the AM line, a dotted terminal line, a color distinction above and below the AM line near the inner margin, all of which seemed consistent with the photo 6024822 in BG and the 3rd Vargo photo in MPG. I thought the inconsistency in the angle of the AM line and the PM line could be because the wings were separated. I also thought that the location and date were consistent with the location map in MPG. I didn't consider the shape of the palps. I have 3 other photos taken of the same specimen, which might provide a slightly different viewpoint. As you know I certainly am no expert.

You may be right. The Alpheioides parvulalis that I have seen here are not like your example. I just gave you my opinion.

 
I may not have seen any if th
I may not have seen any if this is not one. Thanks again for you comments.

Delmar, Most of the examples have more rounded palps, but I think this moth might be . They are tiny, and sit up on their front legs like Pycthini. I had another one last week when we first got to the ranch.
