Hmmm...this microlep looks like it may be a Gelechiid Moth, but I could be wrong about that. This specimen merits expert attention, I think. Thanks for looking! ;-)

Moved from Moths, "The microlep ID is right, it is an Isophrictis sp. You need the specimen in hand to be sure of the species, however, only I. similiella is common in the state. I have singletons of other not very similar species." -- Dr. Gerald Fauske (11 April 2013).

Isophrictis
Definitely a gelechiid, and something in the genus Isophrictis; I don't recognize the species.

 
Thanks, Terry!
Thank you for looking at these images! I hope to collect examples of our many local microleps this season, so perhaps I'll obtain another example! Thanks for suggesting a genus!!
