Pseudochelaria walsinghami

Pseudochelaria walsinghami
Ft. Calhoun, Washington County, Nebraska, USA
May 28, 2009
Size: 7 mm wing length
ID thanks to Bob Patterson & Terry Harrison. Terry says: Based on Sangmi Lee's images on MPG, I would have to say that your moth is P. walsinghami. The subbasal black patch appears rounded, rather than angled to a point as in pennsylvanica, and the long black marking in the middle of the wing does not reach the subbasal patch (marking reaches patch in pennsylvanica).

Moved from Gelechiinae.

Pseudochelaria walsinghami
Thanks, Lynette
