1869.1 – Carpatolechia notatella?
Randy - How is C. notatella eliminated? Or did you base it on my previous ID of his other submission which I now doubt?

Moved
Moved from Moths.

Looks like
Hodges#1881.1 – Carpatolechia proximella. See Chris Steeman's photo at MPG. This species is introduced from Europe. I don't know where it has been found in North America to date.

 
Thank you...
...for the informatiuon and the ID, Randy. I looked at the MPG page. Interesting. BTW, the MPG link in your post has a space between the "s" and the "=" sign so the "MGP" link is not clickable. I got to the page OK manually but you may want to fix the link in order to make it easier for others who follow this thread. Thanks again for the info, Mardon
