Moth to ID (Autosticha kyotensis?) - Autosticha kyotensis
Fort Collins, Larimer County, Colorado, USA
September 1, 2012
The only one I could come up with is #1010.1 – Autosticha kyotensis – Kyoto Moth. If so, this would be a new data point for Colorado. Nothing else seemed to come close, other than #2287, which is probably out of range. Compare with:

Moved from Autostichidae.

Moved from Gelechioidea.

I think it looks a lot like this one ID'd for me, so that makes three of us that agree and to me it seems better off here than in the Super Family.

Moved from Moths.
It sure looks right to me, but I'm hesitant to move it to species level since it's so far from any known location for this species. (However, with an introduced species, anything is possible, so feel free to move it if you feel confident.)
