http://mothphotographersgroup.msstate.edu/species.php?hodges=856

Kyle Johnson collected a specimen from Mackinac Co (MI) in a similar habitat on Sept. 18, 2018.

"sand dune ridges/wetland swales with scattered Larix-Pinus-Thuja-Picea-Betula woodland groves."

https://www.gbif.org/occurrence/2275095059


[Sept 9, 2021 edit: Kyle Johnson commented:

'sure looks like it to me. Agonopterix lythrella is similar size and pattern (and flies around the same time), but with a distinct dark reddish cast.

Wow, surprising that is new to Canada, given collection efforts on Manitoulin Island and other places. Shows how much we don't know! I've taken it in a few other northern Michigan locations as well, in addition to Mackinac. Co. Should be sought elsewhere in Ontario, esp. near the border with Michigan.

Description

Brampton, Peel Region, ON

Here are 3 comments differentiating L. laticinerea from L. antennata from an observation on iNat. Here...
inaturalist.ca/observations/41300972

Apparently laticinerea lacks both the overall silvery-bluish reflectivity and the blackish claviform of antennata. There's a notable difference in proportions as well: antennata usually has shorter/broader wings while laticinerea is longer/narrower.

Laticinerea does have a contrasting paler basal area, although it's a pale gray contrasting with the darker gray of the rest of the wing (instead of whitish in antennata), often with a darker gray edge where antennata has black.

Also, Forbes "Leps of New York" points out that laticinerea has a bigger suborbicular than antennata, which is evident here and in (most) other web photos.
