White-banded Telphusa

I do not have time to go looking for moths, but this one came to me. It was sitting on a flower catalog in front of my computer. I think it's a white-banded telphusa. Very small; usually 5-7 mm long per Peterson Field Guide to Moths of Northeastern North America.

The room was too dark for me to get a good picture. I had some idea of carrying it on the catalog to a spot near a window, but it flew away before I could do any such thing.

Usually when I try to type "moth" I automatically type "mother."
