When I first saw it I assumed itwas Ypsolopha canariella but after looking thru some photos I noticed it looks a lot like Ypsolopha dentiferella. Found along North Fork Teanaway River. What do you think?

Moved from ID Request.

Ypsolopha canariella
Well. Maybe this really is Ypsolopha canariella. I will post another photo I took the same night which looks really close except it is much lighter. Sorry, I don't know how to add pictures in the comment section.
