Prolita jubata Moth
Family Twirler Moths (Gelechiidae)

jubata

prolita jubata twirler moth
I found this little moth hiding in the shade on a cool morning on Antelope Island.  It didn't like the camera flash too
 much and flew the coop after about three shots.  I thought it was a decorative fly until I looked at it on my computer.
