Epermenia albapunctella? - Epermenia
Barnum, Carlton County, Minnesota, USA

Was on the sheet lighted by the porch light in the early morning and stayed after sunrise.

Epermenia
I don't know the genus well, but it's unmistakable.

 
Epermenia
It is extremely small and at first I thought it was a speck of dust. Basing my id on this at MPG https://mothphotographersgroup.msstate.edu/species.php?phylo=520006

The map shows it to be present in MN. Of course it could be another similar looking species.
