Six-Plume Moth - Alucita

Six-Plume Moth - Alucita
Two Harbors, Lake County, Minnesota, USA
August 31, 2008
I know that this is a Six-Plume Moth, genus Alucita, but, after seeing the guide page in the guide, there seems to be 3 diffferent species here is the U.S. Anyone have any ideas regarding this specimen as to a posible species? I also noticed that of the images in the guide, the closest, geographically, was Alberta province in Canada. I've added several, very, close-up images of parts of it's body. It's wingspread was 12mm, if that will help in ID's. I look forward to hearing and species ID's or ideas. Thanks.
