Small black moth

Small black moth
Marin County, California, USA
September 23, 2009
Size: 5 mm length
Small, black moth with a yellowish head... Attracted to a blacklight.

Moved from Moths.

Prodoxus aenescens?
Not an ID, just a guess. Image at ClaPhotos here.

I think that was a bad guess. I think it's something in Yponomeutidae but that might just be another bad guess.

Some tineids are similar
but maybe only superficially.
