Moved
Moved from Ocnerostoma.
The other eastern species, which is undescribed, feeds on red pine.

Moved
Moved from Nepticuloidea.
Looks reasonable to me.

not nepticuloid
Isn't this an Ocnerostoma? Those feed in pine needles

Thank you for the correction and getting it to the right place. I will try to remember this. Keep a list of images to refer to for comments.

Moved
Moved from Moths.

Molly, I think this move is better than leaving it way back in Moths. Those "ear muffs are very distinctive, so I cannot be too far off.

Molly
I am trying to move languishing submissions to places in the guide where they can get the eye of an expert. Would you like to move this one to Family at least? Looks like you may have more experience than I. With those '\'ear muffs" I would have thought possibly something in Tineoidea like #0122.

 
hi
I wish I could help, but I have little familiarity with moth taxa (or most insect taxa, I'm just a beginner!). It is nice to see that this little moth is getting some attention at least, I hope it can be ID.

 
if it helps
This moth was on white pine, Pinus strobus.
