Description

http://mothphotographersgroup.msstate.edu/species.php?hodges=1097

Rather low res image of the type specimen from San Diego can be found here https://collections.nmnh.si.edu/search/ento/?ark=ark:/65665/32097f55106514a46b668ce18956c102e

This example seems to key out using p. 26, Key to the Species of Elachista Based on Venation and Coloration, also matching the species description on p. 51, in the publication Braun, 1948, Elachistidae of North America 1948. Memoirs of the American Entomological Society. 13 https://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/page/38636849#page/9/mode/1up Did notice the pale whiter hind leg compared to fore and middle legs.

Two examples in my metal halide Skinner trap this morning. Only managed photos of one individual.

Matched to a nearby Norris Bloomfield BOLD specimen here https://v3.boldsystems.org/index.php/Public_RecordView?processid=LNAUT2990-14
