Moved from Ethmia.

Greya piperella
John, I'm not sure you saw it, but there's a bunch of your moths on this MPG page. `If you need new pages made for any of them, just put a note in the forums "Requests for Additional Guide Pages" with the photo number. For example, this is #51357.

Moved from Moths.

Looks Like an Ethmia (Oecophoridae)....
... but might be of some other micro family. I can find photos for about 16 of 50 speciea attributed to North America, but not this one.

Probably Tineidae
I would say that is a moth from the Tineidae family. Note tufted head. Oecophorids have smoothly scaled head.
