Help! - Fascista quinella
Norman, Cleveland County, Oklahoma, USA
May 29, 2010
Size: 9 mm
I have this moth in my apartment and it looks like the same species as this one: Is there anything I can do to better document this moth so that we can figure out what it is (any way to get a better picture or any marks that need to be visible)? This is the third individual like this photographed in Norman, so they aren't too uncommon. Definitely attracted to lights, seen so far in April, May, and August. Size is measured. Sorry for the blurry picture, they are tiny and the lighting was very poor.

Moved from Fascista.

Moved from Redbud Leaffolder.

Moved from Moths.

And it turns out to be...
Fascista cercerisella. I would guess this one may be as well. Thanks to Sangmi Lee for an ID.

Generalized Pattern Found in Filatima, Aroga, Facista
Collect specimens, pack well and send to SangMi Lee at Mississippi Entomological Museum. If identification is possible she is the one to advise. (no rsvp, thanks)
