I collected a very similar specimen in Gila National Forest (NM)
back in July. I haven't been able to find a match for it (yet). Vazrick Nazari showed it to Jean-Francois Landry and neither of them recognized it. Whatever it is, it's a good one.

Gelechiidae
Note thin, curved palpi. This specimen looks rather similar to some images at MPG in Isophrictis. I couldn't find any with the point at the tip of the FW seen here, but that may be because it is worn away in the pinned specimens. There are also several species without images on MPG, so this might be one of those.
