Aglossa-type pyralid - Pyralis manihotalis

Aglossa-type pyralid - Pyralis manihotalis
Tallahassee, Leon County, Florida, USA
December 11, 2012
Size: ~7mm length
Discovered on outside wall of our home about 20 cm above ground. Moth is similar to a much more worn specimen I posted three months ago here. Perhaps this handsome edition has a better chance being identified. One can always hope!

Thanks!

 
The other one -
Maury, did you have a look at the other one? Jason Roberts agrees that it also is Pyralis manihotalis - a quite worn individual, however. Is it worth keeping or should it be frassed?

Thank you!
This was a prompt ID - from the images available on BG and MPG I would never have been able to come up with it. Is the moth of the earlier post here the same species or too worn to be identifiable? (Destination Frass?)
