Gelechia panella

Gelechia panella
Eddy Mountains, 3,650', Siskiyou County, California, USA

I think this is may be Gelechia panella, attracted to light. MPG shows this moth in my area and has comparison photos. Hi-res image at CalPhotos. Per BOLD "At the end of the cell is a very indistinct blackish dot and at apical third is a still more indistinct very narrow oblique yellowish white fascia across the wing." The band accross the FW is best seen on the BOLD pinned image.
