I must be missing something, as I cannot find a match for this. Any help would be MUCH appreciated.

Moved from Dichomeris.

Moved from Twirler Moths.

Valerie, I think this is another Dichomeris punctipennella.

Oops. Another one.
I hope I didn't, in my frustration at first with this species, post any more. I think it's another Neodactylota liguritrix. I noticed on Mike's first posted image that Bob Patterson had his doubts on the determination. It really doesn't match the other images in that taxon.

Thank you so much for cleaning up these.
