I only recently recieved an identification of this species as Prays fraxinella even though I took the photo in 2009. Despite the age of the photo, I am posting it because I believe that it documents a newly invasive species that has not be reported in Newfoundland previoulsy. I may be wrong, but that is my understanding. I wasn't sure where else to report the sighting. It was 7mm head to folded wingtips. Several similar looking moths were in the same general area.
