Moved from Ethmia prattiella.

0978 – Ethmia apicipunctella?
Per your recent guide page addition and image submission, isn't this Ethmia apicipunctella?

Edit: also see original descriptions of both.

Wow, I think you are right. Sent some to Maury after he commented on this one. He dissected the ones I sent and they were E. prattiella. I can't tell who moved this to species, probably me after he did the dissections of other specimens I sent to him.

I dont understand. It sounds like you are saying that Maury dissected specimens you sent that are like this one and he confirmed that they were prattiella. If so, why are you moving this out of prattiella? Did you reverse the names?

Moved from Ethmia.

The specimens arrived in great shape!

Moved from ID Request.

I see you have some others at the genus level. Will work on these later.
This one is interesting! Try to get more photos of other individuals or collect some. This might be prattiella or something undescribed.
