Hodges #8400 - Pygmy Redectis Moth? - Redectis pygmaea
Tallahassee, Leon County, Florida, USA
September 6, 2013
Size: Forewing ~7.5mm
At outdoor light. To me the absence of a white reniform spot and the pale triangular endings of PM and ST lines suggest that it is Redectis pygmaea and not R. vitrea. The image is not much to brag about, but perhaps I can get a comment regarding the moth's ID.

Moved from Moths.
Adds Florida to the guide.

Thank you, Fyn, for confirming my ID pick for this one. Yes, first BG image for Florida - but the species is listed in the Florida checklist. Surprising that I should become the first to post an image!
