Hello all,

Here is a specimen found near my house (near Vermont). Would it be possible to identify the genus and the species? I'm suspecting Hellinsia sp.







Thanks for helping me :)

Cheers,

Michel-

It certainly appears to be a Hellinsia sp. Here's a website that should help you get a species. http://mothphotographersgroup.msstate.edu/slow.php?plate=15&page=2&sort=h
