Can someone ID this moth?

Moved from ID Request.

Probably 6210 - Hellinsia balanotes
I sent the photo to Debbie Matthews who responded: ".... Hellinsia balanotes. I've collected it before in Santa Cruz Co. AZ. The larvae feed on Bacharis growing in riparian habitats there."

Very cool
Bob - Thanks - definitely alot of Baccharis around!
