  1. Could be an Acrobasis sp.

''Acrobasis caryalbella'' is a species of snout moth in the genus ''Acrobasis''. It was described by Charles Russell Ely in 1913 and is known from the eastern United States.

There is one generation per year.

The larvae feed on ''Carya'' species, including ''Carya ovata'', ''Carya tomentosa'' and ''Carya glabra''. The species probably overwinters in the larval stage.
