Observation notes: Measured 12mm TL. Photographed within 40 feet of Cottonwood tree. ID provided by Michael Sabourin, who referees MPG pages on Olethreutine. Apparently there are records for Indiana, Illinois, South Carolina, Colorado, so this one is not just found in the N.E., Canada or California. No current images in Plate Series for this species on MPG, so this will be submitted to them. Only 1 set of images in BugGuide for any location, this represents first Data for Missouri: http://bugguide.net/node/view/1209792
