Sand Hills moth - Acrolophus

Sand Hills moth - Acrolophus
Nebraska National Forest, Blaine County, Nebraska, USA
June 24, 2020
Size: ~16 mm TL
Found at the Whitetail Campground. After numerous searches, still unable to come with a suggested ID for this one.

Moved from ID Request. Thank you gentlemen for taking time to review and comment. The palps do say Acrolophus to me, so that is where I am moving this one thanks to Aaron. It does look somewhat close to heppneri, but that appears to be limited to the Gulf Coast.


Gelechiini tribe?
Gelechiini tribe could be right. Maybe some kind of Filatima? Just a guess.
