6041 Coenochroa bipunctella
I have to get another opinion but it look like this is Coenochroa bipunctella which would be pretty far out of range. I have an image as well but I think it's a different individual.

Edit - just remembered. This is the same species as the one you posted here which I think is the same individual as the one I photographed.
