Photo not available, specimen still here. I'm having troubles getting a good shot of it so I sketched the forewing.
You are amazing, thanks! I have been trying to place it in a family now for three evenings without the aid of higher magnification and have been unsuccessful. Glad to finally see something that's at least the same shape and has the same venation!
