Hello John! Atteva aurea flies from March to November, and has been recorded from BugGuide April to November in Georgia. However, this species is introduced, and its main food plant, ornamental Ailanthus is not native, so depending on your location, this species could vary in frequency.

dayna, the scientific name for this species should be Atteva aurea. Atteva punctella is an old name. Great spot!
