I apologize for the lousy image, but I'm posting this specimen because it resembles another moth I encountered in another area of Minnesota in April (see thumb photo below). Could this individual be Agonopterix argillacea (Hodges #0889)? I'm hoping to confirm or correct the identity. Thanks for looking! Please frass if the image is unusable.
