Coordinator notes: Digging through recent articles, it appears there are a handful of genus Eccoptocera moths endemic to the Big Island, most of which are not described in available literature as of yet. This individual falls into that category. Therefor, I'll ID it as "Eccoptocera species" for now until further literature ever becomes available. -jmgesell
