concerning size here

 
Size
Thanks John! Due to its size, I belive its too small to be A. schlaegeri. General appearance was that of a small and delicate moth so I think that it fits Antaeotricha leucillana better.

 
Size
You say yours is 11 mm, and Bob says "not greater than 9 mm" is Antaeotricha leucillana, so I take those to mean not Antaeotricha leucillana. Maybe one of the species not on BG, or maybe too close to call?

 
Size
Bob sys "wing length is not greater than 9 mm", my measurement is tip of head to wing tips so I think that allowing 2-3 mm for the "head", puts it in the range for Antaeotricha leucillana.

 
Ahh!
That makes sense.
