Micro Moth - Crocidosema

Micro Moth - Crocidosema
about five miles east of Gulf Breeze, Florida, Santa Rosa County, Florida, USA
January 13, 2013
Size: About 6 mm in length
This moth looks like Sonia constrictana to me, but I think it also could be Sonia paraplesiana both of which MPG maps show in my area. I would appreciate another opinion of the ID of this moth.

Pete,
I'm sure this is S. constrictana but want to place here for now. I spent a good deal of time updating guide pages yesterday, which finally includes descriptions, based on the type specimens ... which I'm presently having a problem relating to specimens posted on MPG and BOLD. You could really help if you have a high-rez image of this lateral shot. If you do, please email. Thanks.
Robert
