Micro Moth H

Size: 18 mm wing span
This moth was caught on our first National Moth Week event. I am needing a lot of help with ID. Much appreciation in advance.

Moved from ID Request. There are so many Eucosma and Pelochrista in the West, including a good number without images online, that I hesitate to identify most without reference to the fascicles.

This is a Tortricid Moth, probably something like Eucosma segregata. Hold on for another opinion.
