Morophagoides burkerella

Morophagoides burkerella
Port Alberni, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada
June 20, 2009
Size: 1.5 cm head to tail
Not sure where to put this (i.e. which family) & not sure of ID. Seen twice in last two weeks. Attached four photos - two each of two individuals. Seems on the large side for a micro - 1.5 cm head to tail. Scardiella approximatella is the closest thing I've come up with based on MPG, but not sure if it would be too large for that.

Images of this individual: tag all
