Hmmm...I'll need some help with this specimen. My first guess is that it's a Smartweed Borer Moth (Hodges #4947), but I'm probably wrong. I'd appreciate any and all hints! Thanks for looking! ;-)

Moved from Moths.

Re: Crambidae: Ostrinia obumbratalis?
I think an Udea species, maybe Udea rubigalis - Hodges#5079.

Excellent! Thanks, Jay!
