Moved from Rhyacionia zozana.

Tentative ID. Dissection is required.

Michael Sabourin agrees that this is not likely to be zozana. We also considered R. jenningsi but it has less white in the fringe and some reddish scaling on the head posteriorly.

Thanks Steve. I agree and appreciate your assessment.

Rhyacionia fumosana?
R. zozana has a red head and red scales on the thorax anteriorly. See Powell & Miller (1978). R. fumosana looks pretty good to me. The head and thorax is described as "hoary gray." Although it's known as far north as southwest SD, western MT might be out of range. I'm not sure.
