Came to UV light at night. Looks like A. paraplutella from Powell & Opler, but they indicate that it occurs at beach dunes, whereas my specimen was found in inland valley foothills. The MPG map shows some inland records though.

Moved from Twirler Moths.

Either A. paraplutella or A. unifasciella. I prefer the first choice but your moth is whiter than the example.

Moved from Twirler Moths. Sorry for the double move - don't know WHAT I did. I think you are right but I could not definitely rule out some others. If you had a lateral view it might help the real experts.

Moved from Moths.

Moved from ID Request.
