came to light

Perfect!
Thanks, J.D.

It's been almost a year since I looked at the California Dept. of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) site whose links are still broken but might get fixed one day because the site is still alive. I had forgotten what metaleuca looked like. Fortunately, MPG has a couple of thumbnail copies of a CDFA pic (such as at the bottom of this page) that show the distinctive markings.

Moved from Moths to new species page.

Matigramma
I believe this is Matigramma metaleuca, # 8682. (I can't remember off the top of my head, but I think the genus is now Acritogramma).
