Crambid moth?

Crambid moth?
Santa Fe, Santa Fe County, New Mexico, USA
October 8, 2020
Size: small, maybe a half inch
Looking for ID of this moth with prominent snout and feathery antennae. A cambid moth? Taken on October 8 at 9:13 PM on the wall of our Santa Fe NM house under a porch light. Another (same species I think) found the same evening on the opposite side of the house, also under a light.

Thaumatopsis pexellus - Woolly Grass-veneer Moth?
