Unknown moth - Dichomeris euprepes

Unknown moth - Dichomeris euprepes

Moved tentatively
Moved from Twirler Moths. Great find! I don't have the fascicle, but this looks like a good match for the images on BOLD.

Not sure
This looks very different than the image in the fascicle. D. leuconotella and D. euprepes are listed as similar in appearance with similar geniatlia. The basal edge of the subterminal band for euprepes is strait separating it from leuconotella, the pm. band is reduced to a fairly small spot, the basal spot is more reduced, the pale gray ground color does not contrast with the the black bands as much and it lacks the contrasting darker gray stripe along the basal half of the costal margin. I can't say it's impossible for this to be euprepes but it doesn't seem to me to be more compelling than other similar species. You might try running by an expert.

RE: Moved tentatively
Great, thanks for tracking this one down!
