Is this moth Eucosma consobrinana?

10/17/14 I appreciate the help that Bob Webster has given me by sharing some of his photographs. I now think this is probably Eucosoma palabandana Hodges #3079.

The Eucosomas are confusing and I do see some I think are out of place.

Moved from Pelochrista.

Moved from Eucosma.

Species this resembles were transferred to Pelochrista by Gilligan & Wright (2013) (1)

Steve, I sent another specimen from October, 2014 that looks identical to this one and BOLD has confirmed it as E. personalita. Is there an exact Pelochrista species? What is the Hodges #?

3090 Pelochrista persolita?
I think you meant persolita, formerly in Eucosma. References here.

Moved from ID Request.

There may be a few Eucosma in the wrong place in the guide.
Will do some checking.
