NMW2017 Moth #50 - Aristotelia rubidella

NMW2017 Moth #50 - Aristotelia rubidella
Lincoln, Lancaster County, Nebraska, USA
July 24, 2017
Size: 5 mm
Came to light, found in early morning. Moth liked to perch with head downward, slanted toward wall, which seems a bit unusual for Aristotelias? Perhaps resembles something like Aristotelia rubidella (#1762) but help much appreciated. Have another picture on request that is slightly brighter if needed, but did not initially submit because there's a bit of a glare on it.

Moved from Butterflies and Moths.

I went ahead and put it in here. Looks like these occur around NE now and then.

Your suggested species looks right to me.
