Micromoth - Cosmopterix minutella

Micromoth - Cosmopterix minutella

Keys out very nicely to C. minutella using Koster's key
However, it has only been reported from Florida, so this move should be considered tentative. Do you remember approximately how long it was? Moved from Cosmopterix.

I think I probably can't give a good estimate now. But cool, I'll keep an eye out for more, for measurements and collection. Thanks for the (tent.) ID.

Moved from Moths.

But there are several very close. Great photo!
