Moth with row of spots, plus four fainter ones - Autosticha kyotensis
Houston, Harris County, Texas, USA
April 1, 2009
Size: ~ 1/2 inch
Came to porch light. On most (all?) pictures of Psilocorsis reflexella, the row of dots is closer to the fringe than it is on this moth. But I think maybe that's what it is anyway (the plain form).

Edit: First BG image for this species.

Autosticha kyotensis

Moved to Gelechioidea
Moved from Moths.
