Fleabane Cochylid Moth - Hodges #3790 - Eugnosta erigeronana

Fleabane Cochylid Moth - Hodges #3790 - Eugnosta erigeronana
Mobile County, Alabama, USA

Thinking an ID would be easy, I've been sitting on this one. Thanks for any help.

Moved
Moved from Moths.

I agree with Eugnosta erigeronana and your other image in the guide is clearly that species. The way the wings are folded is very tort-like and there really isn't anything else like it in Tortricidae that I'm aware of.

I Found It

 
Maybe
I certainly have made too many mistakes with moths to try and ID without expert help. :)

dipped moth
It looks like a brown moth dipped in white chocolate.

 
Fondue Moth?
:)

 
One of the bird-dropping moths?
See here.

 
Thanks
I've looked through all of those on BG & Internet and have found nothing that satisfies me. The top half of this specimen is totally white ... scales, antennae, et al. If I ever see another, I'm collecting.
