Pelochrista agricolana

Pelochrista agricolana
Eddy Mountains, 3650', Siskiyou County, California, USA
June 23, 2019
I think this is Pelochrista agricolana, attracted to light. BG has a good comparison photo from Oregon. Page 42 of Walsingham's "Illustrations of typical specimens of Lepidoptera Heterocera" has a very good description of Pelochrista agricolana (Paedisca agricolana) which matches this moth well and notes that they were found in California and Oregon during May and June.
