At outdoor light. I am too ignorant to place this moth, tried all reasonably likely (and even unlikely) families in MPG through Noctuidae and may have missed it.

Clothes Moth
The wing shape seems to point elsewhere, but it could be a slightly worn version of this critter. Check out the long white hairs on those legs. (small size)

That's it.
Thank you, Bob, for the eye-opener. Yes, I now see that trace of a tuft of hair-like scales on the front legs. I thought I would always recognize this species, having a few in my files ranging from 5 to 12(!) mm, but failed this time. I'm going to frass these photos, having an August record in BugGuide already.

I don't think that you should frass. This is a good example of the variations of features for this species.

Thanks, Bob
I was about to do it - there are far too many unnecessary and redundant images in the Guide, but these, perhaps are not redundant. So be it - thank you for sharing your opinion and your interest.
