Cosmopterix scirpicola 1494?? - Cosmopterix floridanella
Okeechobee County, Florida, USA

I have been looking at BG and MPG and think I may have found this one. Please confirm or help with ID please.

Most Likely 1497 - Cosmopterix floridanella
...based on date. Markings might also imply this species. Try measuring the sheet to determine the forewing length. It could be important. Other species of Cosmopterix should be found a month or more later in the year.

 
measuring the sheet
I measured the sheet. There are 2 of the large threads that make a mm and 3 of the smaller threads that make a mm. The larger threads go from lower left to upper right. Hope this helps. I figure it to be about 3.5-4 mm. Thanks for your help.

 
The Size Also Confirms it as 1497
(no rsvp, thanks)
