Description

Found in the morning inside my light box. This is one very tiny moth. The iNat AI identifies it as Opostegidae family. Checking this against the book according to "Annotated checklist of the Lepidoptera of Canada and Alaska" by Pohl et al. 2018, the only moth found in SK for this family is Pseudopostega cretea. A look at this link (http://mothphotographersgroup.msstate.edu/species.php?hodges=119) seems to support that this is indeed that moth.
