Moved from Schreckensteinia.

I really hate doing it this way but...
I think I found another moth similar to this one...

Moved from Moths.

2509.99 -- Schreckensteinia sp.
Identified by Brian Scholtens at MPG

Possible Yponomeutid Moth...
... similar to a European Ocnerostoma. Two members of this genus appear on the Hodges Check List for North America, but I cannot find decent photos for comparison with this one. Could be from a different genus in Yponomeutidae, or perhaps a Coleophorid species (I doubt it due to posture and appearance of the antennae) or of yet some other micro family. Photo saved for further searching at MPG.

Possible Yponomeutid Moth
Thanks for your help. I'll do some research on those you mentioned.
