Original ID by Bob Patterson as Streptopalpia minusculalis (13 April 2009). James Hayden,Curator of Lepidoptera at the Florida State Collection, corrected ID (20 May 2011). I have no idea what the host plant is, but it's something that only exists on Alabama & Florida Gulf Coast. For four years, it has been coming to lights throughout March -October. Except for a few occasional sightings, I pretty much own this Moth :)
