Banded Scythris
Scythris trivinctella


Scythris trivinctella
          moth
I thought this tiny moth on Antelope Island was a bird dropping
 the first
time I looked at it. Bugguide later identified it as a
 
Banded Scythris, which comes in many variable outfits.
Check out this cute this moth (whose larva prefer to
 munch on Amaranthus) on Moth Photographers
