Small moth visiting California Buckwheat flowers

Moved

some kind of metalmark moth
...resembling Choreutis pariana but with relatively straight AM and basal lines, dark blotches in the median and subterminal areas, pale head & "shoulders", and a fringe with lots of pale scales.

That combination doesn't seem to fit any of the related species/genera I've looked at, so I'm not sure what this one is.
