moth - Pelecystola nearctica

moth - Pelecystola nearctica
Mississauga, Peel Region, Ontario, Canada

This moth was found resting on a tree trunk. I am having real trouble identifying it...not even sure of the family. Any help with this ID is much-appreciated!

Moved from Tineoidea.

Moved from Moths.

this guy was about 1" long, that's why a guesstimate of size would help. I'm thinking it might be this one here Pelecystola nearctica - Hodges#0434.1

Thank you SO much Thomas-
your ID suggestion looks good to me- thanks so much for your help!

Moved from ID Request.
