corylifoliella?
This is probably S. corylifoliella or the introduced European S. microtheriella. They are hard to tell apart.

 
I
couldn't find anything online about the current range of S. microtheriella in the U.S. Do you know where I might find that info?

Is this a recent introduction event?

 
S. microtheriella
Erik has found this species in both eastern and western US, but nothing has been published about this yet. I believe in the east it has only been found in New England so far, but I don't think anyone has really looked in Maryland at this point. See the map on BOLD.
