Moved, Chionodes mediofuscella
Moved from Twirler Moths. Thanks for adding. I'm more used to the dorsal view, and I wanted to confirm that the wing shape looked right.

Moved
Moved from Butterflies and Moths. Do you have a dorsal shot? I'm pretty sure you're right, but I'd like to check the dorsal.

 
Added
Dorsal shot. You can probably see why I didn't originally post this: it didn't add much! It's all shiny because I took the picture and let loose the flash at exactly the wrong angle. Even moths that look rather flat can be rather glossy in the right light.
