It looks a lot like a feather to me.

I usually try not to RSVP as Bob Patterson would say
But ID'ing these moths is quite a big help to me and Bugguide. Especially micro moths! I will try to remain silent, though to save your time!

Moved from Moths.

I think this can be moved to Gelechioidea...
...I saw this moth several times, however, its small size made it hard to get a good photo of. What I remember was that it was shiny, had long "streamers" at the base of the wings, and it had a very fluttery way of flying.
