Beautiful, bright orange Oecophorid moth with bright white banding and underlying black bands (near base of forewing). Also one bright white dot at the edge of each forewing. Simple antennae. Around 5 mm forewing length. I wish I could have gotten a clearer shot, but this guy flew away shortly after I photographed it!
At porch lights near overgrown field/front yard and mixed hardwood forest.
A species introduced from Asia
