Cydia marita Brown and Jaeger, 2014
Widespread in the eastern US
Aaron Hunt noticed that most images at MPG and BugGuide that were identified as Satronia tantilla might be misidentified Cydia marita. Upon review, Richard Brown agreed. See his comments below. - Steve Nanz, 3/12/2019.

Satronia tantilla Heinrich, 1926 - Richard Brown, pers. comm., 3/11/2019:
1) basal area of forewing more uniform in color, without striae;
2) Silvery striae forming two wide bands at midwing, neither divided by lines of brown scales;
3) Post-medial stria with sharper angle at middle;
4) pre-terminal silvery stria or spot absent; dark spots may be present on outer margin of post-medial stria, but rarely forming long streaks
In addition to the above, the forewing terminal line and fringe of Cydia marita tends to be faintly interrupted near the apex by the outer most silvery stria on the costal margin. In S. tantilla this stria tends to be broken into two spots, the outer spot falling shy of the terminal line. - Steve Nanz, 3/12/2019.
