Moth for ID - Fabiola edithella
Temple Hills, Prince George's County, Maryland, USA

size?
This could be F. lucidella with wing length ~5.5-6.5 mm vs. edithella at ~3.5-4.5 mm. Try to get a measurement if you encounter it again.

 
Thanks
for your comment, Steve, and the heads up. As for this particular individual, I am quite sure the ID is correct as stands. Even though it was a while back, I do remember that this one was definitely less than 5mm in length.

 
Good to know
I guess the descriptions are not that useful for separating these. Thanks!

Awesome!
Thanks, Kyhl. One of the least common ones I've found so far.
