Light colored mouse moth? - Chionodes praeco

Light colored mouse moth? - Chionodes praeco
St. Laurent, Manitoba, Canada

At the porch light. iNaturalist ai and Leps ai suggest a mouse moth, but seems lighter and has the dark stripes on the thorax.

Moved from Chionodes praeclarella. I wrongly assumed this fell within the variation of praeclarella, but this is a clear match for praeco in the fascicle.

Thanks Aaron.

What are the key features to ID this species? I'm seeing primarily brown winged specimens on MPG, iNat, and BOLD without the obvious spotting and dashes seen on my specimen or am I focusing on the wrong features?

Thanks Aaron!
