Ironwood Tubemaker Moth
Acrobasis sylviella

Observation date: July 28, 2020
Submitted by: tirvine2020
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Found near a light. I think it's either this or A. caryae, but the "hump" on caryae is distinctively split on most of the photos I've seen, and from what I can tell of photos of sylviella, the hump is more continuous across the wings, like this moth.
