Probably Crocidosema plebejana
This looks like a male C. plebejana but not sure there are no other possibilities.

Moved to Crocidosema
Moved from Epinotia perplexana.

See my comments here.

Moved, Epinotia perplexana
Moved from Olethreutinae.

Moved
Moved from Moths.

I'm thinking
Sonia constrictana

 
Perhaps
Sonia constrictana shows a significant amount of white on the sides of the moth which does not appear in these photos. Do some Sonia constrictana have little or no white on the sides? Is this important?
