Moved from Lesser Wax Moth.

That looks good to me
I hope I put it in the right tribe, because All-Leps only lists subfamily.

Are you using
the All-Leps North American Checklist with Synonymies list? It includes tribes, subspecies, synonyms etc. and lists Achroia under Galleriini.

The All-Leps simple North American Checklist just lists families/subfamilies, which is why I never use it.

I put it in my favorites, and that's going to help a lot. I was using the simple list.

Reminds me of 5623 -- Lesser Wax Moth -- Achroia grisella
... but looks a bit different from other photos. Maybe your photo is just too good?
