Moved from Moths.

Moved from ID Request.

I am moving some of the older ID Requests to Moths today. I think John Schneider made an excellent suggestion of both species and moves to make. I have seen this one several times, but it was a long time before one was identified by an expert for me. Sorry I am not qualified to make an identification.

Looks like it to me. I think there are some similar, but C. peritana is certainly very common. If you want the opinion of someone w/ more expertise, moving the image to moths or tortricidae is probably your best bet.
