Divide, Beaverhead County, Montana, USA
September 2, 2020
Size: ~10 mm TL
Found at the BLM Divide Bridge Campground. I take lots of photos of Olethreutinae, but will only spend time trying to identify them if the photo is good and the moth is fairly fresh and distinctive. This is one of those that I have tried to ID by going thru all of the likely BugGuide species and the plate series at Moth Photographers Group several times. While I cannot with a level of certainty suggest a genus, I seemed to linger most on Catastega, Gretchna and Zeiraphera.
