Epipleminae - Philagraula slossoniae

Epipleminae - Philagraula slossoniae
Hobe Sound, Martin County, Florida, USA
August 13, 2013
Size: 18 mm
I am perplexed by this one, and any input is appreciated. I assume it is not Calledapteryx dryopterata (Brown Scoopwing- 7653) because it lacks the forewing scoops. But it does not really match any of the Callizzia amorata (Gray Scoopwing-7650) images on BugGuide, MPG or BOLD. It looks like a hybrid between these two species. I can't find any other species possibilities.

Moved from Scoopwing Moths. Now on MPG as this species.

Possibly 7654 - Philagruala slossoniae
Looks very much like specimen at BOLD. I'm asking CNC folks for opinion.

7654 looks like a good possibility. Did not look at BOLD for this species based on posted photos. Thanks Bob.
