small moth - Cryptaspasma bipenicilla

small moth - Cryptaspasma bipenicilla
about five miles east of Gulf Breeze, Florida, Santa Rosa County, Florida, USA
May 21, 2012
Size: Length about 0.9 cm.
I identified this moth initially as Gymnandrosoma punctidiscanum – Dotted Ecdytolopha Moth since that seemed to be a good match with the characteristic whit dot. And I posted it on BAMONA. On December 6, 2012 I photographed a moth that I thought was also the Dotted Ecdytolopha moth. However this time Curtis Leman identified both moths as Cryptaspasma bipenicilla Hodges 2704.1. I have been unable to find any photos of live moths of this species and MPG has only a spread specimen. I would appreciate any information concerning this moth. Thanks.
