We headed down to the farm on the weekend and I found a couple of these small moths in the house. They are such delicate fliers. Any Ideas?

Moved from ID Request. Based on the Balabans comment.

I noticed that all the photos of these moths in the guide are with wings open. Are they truly like the less 'feathered' Plume moths that always have their wings outstretched?

Yes - Feathery
