Small Moth

Small Moth
Five miles east of Gulf Breeze, FL, Santa Rosa County, Florida, USA
July 4, 2011
Size: About 8mm length
I have seen a number of these moths at my light in the past few nights. The image looks similar to Machimia tentoriferella - Gold-striped Leaftier - Hodges#0951 but according it's Bugguide page it's range is not this far south and it's not a good enough match to convince me of that ID. Thanks for any help.

Moved from Glyphidocera.

I don't know what this is and I don't think it is identifiable. Several families in Gelechioidea contain similar species. See comments here. A better view of the head would help. If I had to guess, Autosticha kyotensis seems the most reasonable.

Moved from ID Request.

I have done a little more searching and maybe Glyphidocera septentrionella is a possibility. Pete Williams
