Tubeworm Moth - Acrolophus

Tubeworm Moth - Acrolophus
Peña Blanca campground, Pajarito Mountains, W of Nogales, Santa Cruz County, Arizona, USA
July 27, 2013
I think this is very similar to Acrolophus variabilis (0385) or A. macrophallus (0363), or A. arizonellus-sp-group Tube Worm Moth, and probably can't be classified from the photo. Maybe it will be of use to someone reviewing them in the future. Thank you.

Moved from Moths.

Compare to
the A. arizonellus sp group . I think it is safe to move it to the genus level.
