Purplish Birch-miner Moth - Eriocrania semipurpurella
Groton, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, USA
May 13, 2009

Identification based on comparison with Tony Thomas' photos in MPG.

FWI - I sent this photo to Bob Patterson ...
... to include on MPG plates. He sent it to Terry Harrison who agrees with this ID.

Randy, thanks for the info and the confirmation.
