Hi guys, why are you thinking this is Barea? ( I've been thinking it may be in the Chezala group, but haven't found it yet.)

Yes, I don't see the palps and head structure or antennae I would expect for Barea sp. genus.

Sorry I was just trying to move an oldish record on - will leave the moths alone
thanks michael

I think I see the dark points of two upcurved palps silhouetted on the head, foreshortened because we are looking down on them.
Oecophoridae because of the size.
Barea because that genus seems to have many of its species having off-white forewings with vague patterns composed of dark speckles, and have the truncated elliptical outline of this dorsal view.

I too think gelechioid palpi are visible. I haven't found any wing pattern like this in the Barea genus. There are a number of moths with longitudinal dark and lighter streaks in the Oecophoridae and Xyloryctidae (and also Pedois (Depressariidae) and Ardozyga (Gelechiidae) but they are less likely). I think Anomozancla scopariella is the best match. The other options in the Chezala group are generally more finely and uniformly streaked, and the xylo options and Pytinaea are courser. I suggest we park the record as Anomozancla scopariella (which has been recorded previously on Black Mountain) until we have more photos

Comparing this with D. Hobern's single photo of this species from Aranda on the ALA, overall it looks similar but only the tip of the palpi seem to be visible in this specimen, but they are the same colour as the Aranda specimen i.e black. We cannot see the full palpi structure which is more evident in the Aranda example. he pattern of hinwing markings are similar, but don't math as much I would like.
