Rich mesic woods, edge of field. Came to porch light/black light.
We are in a very dry spell right now.
Not sure why there are no photos of this moth on Bugguide. None listed for Ohio on MPG either.

I agree with Bob. I cannot place to species because there are so few photographs of I. minuta and their ranges overlap. They are so tiny and seldom distinctly marked. I have thought I might have I. minuta too.

Fortunate Idaea Moth
It's hard to rule out Idaea bonifata, which is much more widespread and a slightly variable species. I suggest that you re-crop the image, while you wait for an expert.
