Micro - Symmetrischema striatella
Sycamore Cyn Campground, Pt Mugu State Park, Ventura County, California, USA

Size: 1/4 inch?

Moved, Symmetrischema striatella

Moved to Gelechioidea
Moved from Twirler Moths.

Moved to Gelechiidae
Moved from Moths.

Not sure this is actually in Gelechiidae but take a look at 1687 Megacraspedus plutella. Also take a look at Symmocinae.

Just for fun take a look at Symmocinae image on MPG here.

I don't think this moth can be identified beyond superfamily (not even sure of that) without a lateral view.
