Camp Wood, Edwards County, Texas, USA

Size: apx. 8 mm
This ID is the only species I could find that assumes this posture and has this coloration. Is this ID correct?

February 9, 2017 This specimen BOLD tested 98.31% Alpheias oculiferalis with no species placement.
It can be seen at TXLEP244-16. I have recently learned to evaluate the sequencing better and do not understand the Tree. Ed Knudson says he calls these Alpheioides parvulalis which does not show up on the Tree. I am going to hope to see another tan one and have both "looks" tested side by side in the near future. Accordingly I moved it back to Pyralid on BG.

August 8, 2017 - Kyhl Austin has questioned this ID and I have gotten further into the background of this species. Our comments can be seen on
