Ephestia columbiella? - Cabnia myronella

Ephestia columbiella? - Cabnia myronella
Tyler State Park, Smith County, Texas, USA
August 18, 2020
Size: Forewing length ~5mm
Came to black light. I realize this is out of the range for Ephestia columbiella, but it was the best fit I could find.

Moved from ID Request.

Different proportions...
...and different color. Also, the description says "Traverse lines fine, obscure, whitish, distinct on upper half of wing, sinuous and narrow." The line on the upper half of the wing looks straight and thick on this individual. Still a Cabnia myronella?
