At 6:PM I noticed this specimen. I had no idea that was so worn. I think this makes my ID more likely to be correct.

Posting the lateral because of the tuft evident in that profile. I don't see it in the other photos nor any mention of it in the description on the information page. Maybe they are worn too.

6/25/18 - Valeria Bugh agreed with this identification.

Now I am wondering about Sciota rubrisparsella - Hodges#5804 which may look like it has a tuft.
