Moth for ID ??? - Argyresthia subreticulata

Moth for ID ??? - Argyresthia subreticulata
Bartlesville, Washington County, Oklahoma, USA
June 10, 2010
This specimen is shown here: BOLD:AAI4417
Found at UV light near pond in wooded area of a flood plain

Moved from Argyresthia.

DNA results
Supported at the Argyresthia genus level by DNA barcoding, BOLD LPOKD967-10

Moved from Moths.

This looks to be an Argyresthia, possibly a somewhat rubbed individual of A. subreticulata, for which the placement of the markings is a good match.

Terry, I have this and two others that match by DNA. The nearest species match is a single specimen of A. subreticulata .
It is off by about 2.4 %, enough to suspect but not confirm the ID. The reference specimen is shown here: DNA-ATBI-3200
I have another matching specimen shown here: BugGuide and just uploaded the third here: BugGuide
If you say that the images are a good match, I will move them to the guide page for A. subreticulata.

I would say that the images are a good enough match to move them to the A. subreticulata page.
