Submitted by: dawittrock2231
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Near a floodlight on my deck. I'm not very confident on this one, the banding in the median area doesn't seem quite right. I also clearly don't have a clue on Cenopis at this time, will have to work on them this summer.

Coordinator notes: Tortricid moths are a real puzzle sometimes. Just wait if you try the Gelechioidea though. They're even more puzzling.
