Small Phigalia Moth Phigalia strigataria (Minot, 1869)  Synonyms: Hodges #6660.

Description:

Each forewing exhibits a gap or only a disconnected black spot in the postmedial line just inward of the two kinks ("teeth") near the costa. In the similar Toothed Phigalia Moth, a prominent third "tooth" fills the gap and connects the adjacent "teeth" in the line (Jason D. Roberts, BugGuide).
