Moth in Boca Raton, FL - Sisyracera inabsconsalis

Moth in Boca Raton, FL - Sisyracera inabsconsalis
Boca Raton, Palm Beach County, Florida, USA
March 19, 2014
Size: small
Not good at sizing or ID'ing moths. Perhaps a pyralid (stored grain moth)? The grid of the screen it's on is approximately 6 squares = 1 centimeter.

Note the name change
Landry (2016) synonymized Sisyracera contortilinealis (Hampson, 1895) with S. inabsconsalis (Möschler, 1890). See remarks under the species page for a link to the paper.
