Phyllonorycter argentifimbriella
Phyllonorycter quercialbella and P. argentifimbriella are very similar in placement of markings, but the markings of the former species are golden (concolorous with the golden outer part of the wing), those of the latter black. Given the tendency toward blackish (contrastingly darker than the golden apical part of the wing) streaks in this moth, I would go with P. argentifimbriella, the larva of which is a leaf miner on oak.
