Gretchena - Gretchena deludana

Gretchena - Gretchena deludana
Tallahassee, Leon County, Florida, USA
July 7, 2015
Size: Length ~7mm
At outdoor light. I think this is a Gretchena on the basis of comparisons with posted images, and among them it should be 3259 Gretchena deludana, especially with respect to .

Heppner's Florida checklist lists only G concubitana and G. bolliana but the match with any of them is not good. Anyway, I would appreciate confirmation of genus or, even better, species.

Congratulations, Peter. You have added a new species for Florida. I might add that Tallahassee is approximately on the same parallel as Mobile.

Thank you, Robert, for settling this.
