Moth - Dryadaula terpsichorella

Moth - Dryadaula terpsichorella
Hillsborough County, Florida, USA
May 29, 2015
Size: 3mm
Can anyone help ID this tiny moth? Thanks.

Moved from Caribbean Scavenger Moth.

Compare the original description for Erechthias minuscula, here, and BOLD images, here, to the original description of Dryadaula terpsichorella, here, and the the BOLD images here. The two species do not seem to be very similar.

Moved from ID Request.

Matt, this tiny odd moth comes in a variety of colorations, but there no other species quite like it.

Very interesting!
