Sticking my neck out on grasshoppers again. This was the tiniest grasshopper, maybe 1cm long. Could hop 40-50 times its length. I know it is young, but the size, coloration...

Description

I found a Schinia verna (Verna's flower moth) that is very close, but not local. Took me to Schinia honesta.
Similar but different markings/pattern than the Small Heliothodes Moth. The hind wing especially. A tiny moth (not much more than 1 cm, hard to see and follow against the white decomposed granite soil) actively feeding and/or laying eggs in the daytime.
Photos with telephoto in bright light, and moth appears worn, otherwise may have appeared more black. Or, could this be a ssp. of Black-spotted? A paler desert variety?
Looks like the same moth as this example: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/22226342

Description

Similar to Zale confusa, Zale rubiata, Zale termina... But I think this matches Mr. Nunn’s at 37197611, and others (many in Texas). A small Zale.
(I had to delete and repost this because had Error 422, or something like that, and it refused to load/refresh on phone.)
