Carolina Moth-ers,

I have attached the only two shots I got of this moth on April 6. The nearset 
match I can make is 1722, Theisoa constrictella. According to Bug Guide it 
should be in NC and it would probably be here in April -- it is in Maryland by 
May. I am not convinced of my tentative ID and would appreciate hearing from 
others. Mine seem to have a lighter-colored area between the darker band and 
the head, while the nearest photo I have found 
(http://bugguide.net/node/view/271319) has the entire area darker than the 
remainder of the moth.
