3104 – Pelochrista mediostriata?
The bad photo of Eucosma monogrammana at MPG appears to be incorrectly identified as does the example at BOLD. That's a southern species which looks very different. It's a brown winged moth with white spots and a little streaking int he distal third. It kind of looks like BG photo #1247961.

Your's looks like Pelochrista mediostriata. I'm thinking the MPG image of E. monogrammana might be that species too. The BOLD specimen for E. monogrammana is in the same BIN with several P. mediostriata.

Thanks Steve! I appreciate yo
Thanks Steve! I appreciate your work.

Disregard my E. monogrammana description
I confused two moths. E. monogrammana is a nondescript tan-winged moth peppered with dark scales sometimes along the veins.
