Orthotylinae - Brooksetta?

Orthotylinae - Brooksetta?
Modoc NF, Red Tail Rim Trail, north trailhead, Modoc County, California, USA
June 24, 2020
Size: 3 mm
Swept from sagebrush (Artemisia) and collected. Very similar to this one I photographed earlier in this county:


Must be Orthotylinae I think based on the claws and the other image, I tried to key it in Knight 1968 but got stuck. Certainly seems like it could be Knight's "Melanotrichus" (now Brooksetta?) based on his description and the host plant?
