Leaf Blotch Miner  - Phyllonorycter

Leaf Blotch Miner - Phyllonorycter
south Austin, Travis County, Texas, USA
January 3, 2009
At lights in small mesic patch under an oak-willow canopy...

Photo determined by Ed Knudson, Texas Lep. Survey, Houston:

Phyllonorycter fitchella, or close


Very similar moth
Here. They look pretty different from any of the other images under fitchella, though. (Mainly in lacking a white head/pronotum and having a narrower middorsal crescent)
