Platyptiliini; Geina or Dejongia?

Platyptiliini; Geina or Dejongia?
Avondale, Maricopa County, Arizona, USA
October 8, 2021
Size: 7.5 mm forewing
On Boerhavia coccinea flower at 11:35 a.m. Appeared to be resting rather than nectaring; remaining motionless for hours. Wingspan measured ~17mm. Has a deep forewing cleft but unsure if deeper than the common Geina micromoths in Arizona. There are two large grape vines where this moth was found although it may not be the host plant.
