Maybe Xenolechia ontariensis
I don't think this is Xenolechia ontariensis. There are two BINs for that species at BOLD. Yours is in BOLD:ACE7728 with 8 samples from AZ, which is out of range. BOLD:AAC6357 with 53 samples ranging from across eastern Canada south to OK and AL, seems more likely. It is not impossible, though, for the two BINs to represent one wide spread species with a lot of variation.

Moved
Moved from Gelechioidea.

Xenolechia ontariensis 1878
BOLD Systems DNA Analysis
Barcode ID CMAZA662-10.

Moved
Moved from Moths.

Probably Gelechiidae: Perhaps Close to 2206 - Faculta inaequalis
I might be wrong but it looks like a worn specimen. (no rsvp, thanks)
