I am calling it this because of the orangish marking of the mid costal margin plus the black dash posterior to the white ST line also at the costal margin. Please go to BOLD and look at specimen # TAMUICEGR-0598 which was collected in the Guadalupe Mtns of TX.

Donald, I did go look but came up with others I thought were more likley candidates. I have trouble with all of these and I see them a lot. The ones that struck me were 5949.1 – Laetilia dilatifasciella and the spread image by Jim Varso of 5962 – Rostrolaetilia texanella which shows a more distinct white AM line.
