Yellow Nutsedge Moth
Diploschizia impigritella

Observation date: April 27, 2013
Submitted by: Jim Eckert
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: On sheet at black light setup. If this can be identified by photo at all, aeriferella 0726, of similarly marked Phyllonorycter, would seem most likely with its lack of a long white basal dash. Only fitchella 0752 is similar in seemingly lacking this mark, but fitchella seems to lack the strong black outlines on white costal patches. Observations based on images from MPG and Microleps.
