Size: ~9mm.
Came to black light. I've just started photographing the moths which come to my black light, so I'll likely be submitting more than one photo of the same species until I get an idea of the variation within each species. (live oak/chaparral habitat).

Do you have a top view?

 
Hi Steve:
I've posted a dorsal view as requested.

 
Gnorimoschema baccharisella?
Take a look at CalPhotos here. The specimen was found in Big Creek Reserve, Monterey County, California. I'll see if MPG agrees. There's a lot more red in the CalPhotos image but the pattern seems as close as it gets to me. Desaturate all the images and you'll see what I mean.

You might want to resubmit the images following the instructions at MPG here.
