Pyralidae? - Lotisma trigonana

Pyralidae? - Lotisma trigonana
Sitka County, Alaska, USA
April 18, 2014
squares are .5cm. This is a new-for-me moth that was attracted to light. Seems like it could fit in Pyralidae, but it does not appear to be one of the 3 species in the family currently known from my region, and I couldn't find a match so far.

Moved from Moths.

Try Lotisma trigonana 2312
It had me stumped when I first found it

That seems like a plausible match to me. Wonder if I should move the photo to the species page.

I would say yes. It really looks good for that species.
