Moved from Cosmopterix.

Moved
Moved from Unidentified Leaf Mines.

Might be C. astrapias, which is not known from southeast of Arkansas and New Jersey (no details of the larval habits have been recorded, beyond host plant), or possibly C. molybdina, which has not been found south of Maine in the east (the habits of your larvae are identical, as far as I can tell).
