Bluegrass Webworm Moth

When I ran my blacklight on Tuesday evening, by far the most common moth species on the sheet was Bluegrass Webworm Moth (Parapediasia teterrella). I counted 7 at one time, but there may have been more overall. Here are a few photos of the species, in different poses and angles. I am not sure if all of these show different individual moths since I took them over a few hours and the moths move around on the sheet.
