Anacampsis populella?
I think this is in Anacampsis, possibly A. populella.

Take a look at BOLD examples here and here. It also appears very similar to Rob Curtis' image in the Guide here.

 
moth
Well, I thought I left a note somewhere in this series regarding the caterpillar but can't seem to find it now. I just posted another photo of the same moth. Guess I'll have to raise some more next year and try again and maybe spreading the wings after the moth has emerged.
