Perispasta caeculalis – Titan Peale’s Pyralid

Hodges # 4951

Caterpillar foods: unknown (Bugguide)

Males have white/semi clear patches in the middle of the forewing.  Females don’t have these patches.

The common name is no longer accurate, since it’s now placed in the Crambidae, not the Pyralidae.
