Battaristis concinusella
I believe this is the other common Battaristis species, B. concinusella (see here). The forewing is fairly uniform gray, with the patch of rust color out near the apex, whereas B. nigratomella has quite a bit of white on the forewing, and the rust-colored area is not quite so prominent as in this species.
