Caloptilia sp. I - Caloptilia

Caloptilia sp. I - Caloptilia
Turtle Lake, Barron County, Wisconsin, USA

At blacklight. Based on pictures in MPG and bugguide, it looks to me like either C. umbratella or the look-alike that feeds on Ribes, but confirmation or correction welcome.

What do you think of C. bimac
