Schulenburg, Texas, Fayette County, Texas, USA

Size: apx. 10mm WL
Markings do not all jive, but this was the only species I could find with fully tuffted, recurved palps that should be in this area and had a rather undefined AM band. Look seems to change with the light. Wingspan may also be a little small and the hind wings look a little dark for it.

I also considered 5820 – Stylopalpia scobiella but it does not appear to have an AM band.

6/25/18 Valerie Bugh agreed with Adelphia petrella.
