Any help with the identity of this moth is appreciated. It was found in cool moist woodland along a stream with a lot of Nettle in the area.

Moth Glyphipterix quadragintapunctata
Hi, Curtis - Amazing to read your description - I found this species on the same date 2013 (June 19) in just exactly the same situation (cool nettle patch along a creek). Only difference is I am in eastern PA near Reading. It's the only time I have found one in 20+ years of moth searching. I have also posted my photo.

Moved from ID Request.
