Excellent Photo of 2641 -- Caloreas leucobasis

tiny moth...
I was thinking it looked like this moth here - Species Caloreas leucobasis - Hodges#2641

That would make it a part of the Metalmark Moths if it is...

 
tiny moth
this looks very much like my photos, thank you.
I will add 2 pics that show the wing pattern better if not the entire subject. This little moth was playing peek-a-boo with me and hid under the Mum's petals when the camera lens got too close.
