We gathered a bunch of similar looking moths
on . We're thinking "Door #1" for you - Euclemensia bassettella. See what you think. What beautiful images of a beautiful moth. Bob Patterson of MPG will be writing you shortly, no doubt!

 
Agreed
I agree on all accounts.

Thanks! I get many different kinds of small moths in my area. I actually thought it was some kind of sawfly when I first captured it. I released it after the images were made.
