I think this is one of the snout moths, but I'm not finding anything that seems to match it in the previous ones I've had here. Any ID help appreciated.

I'm guessing this is in the family Tortricaidae as it reminded me of a Fruit-tree Leafroller Moth, but it does not look right for that species.

Apparently this species is quite variable as I am seeing a noticeable variation in overall colors and clarity of the pattern.

Identified using Mike Quinn's Beetles of Travis County page at:

This appears to be the first observation on iNat of this species so I'm hoping I did not blow the ID. Uncooperative beetle, running across my sheet and just allowing a couple of brief shots, then it flew off.
