It might be a tiny Labdia moth, I haven't check ed yet. How big was it John?

Labdia nesophora is the closest named species that I can find - it isn't the same species.

This record matches the type photo reasonably well, although there are no identified specimens available to provide confirmation, and the species does not appear on BOLD or iNAT.
