Nice find!!!
This appears to be Augolychna septemstrigella, previously only known from a single specimen collected over 150 years ago in Bosque County, Texas and described by Chambers. There are a couple minor differences between this specimen and Dietz's illustration, but there's nothing else it could be. Good to see that this species is alive and well in Virginia! Moved from Butterflies and Moths.

I'm not sure what this is, but it is not Nepticulidae.
