Been catching these regularly here at MV light. It seems to match images I am seeing here on BG of Epinotia perplexana, does not look to have the buffy small dark dotted forewing margin like Cotton Tipworm Moth (Crocidosema plebejana)?

Moved, Crocidosema
Moved from Eucosmini. See comments on similar images at genus level here.

Moved from ID Request. Will update as soon as possible with additional information.
