Moved from Oegoconia.

Tentative ID, dissection/DNA required for certainty. BOLD and the ZOOTAXA paper cited below indicate no records of O. novimundi in eastern Canada although records exist for nearby Maine and Vermont.

Oegoconia deauratella?
It looks like the BugGuide entry for Oegoconia quadripuncta was recently changed to Oegoconia novimundi. Apparently O. quadripuncta does not exist in North America and this would most likely be either novimundi or deauratella. I think deauratella is more likely. Take a look at ZOOTAXA info here and note range for these species at BOLD.

 
O. deauratella
I agree that O. deauratella is more likely. Thanks for pointing this out.
