I never force anybody to withdraw his/her suggestion ;-)...
Reza, your ID is certainly correct! :-)
One of the "+" is actually by me...
It was just a picky note, that the name "punctella" is outdated:
"Explanation of Names
Aurea means golden.
Former species name punctella is from Latin punct a sting or prick, plus suffix ella small." from bugguide.

So its called by a different name, but its not the wrong Id ? I guess I won't be forced to withdraw my suggestion !
