Filatima arizonella
The larger moth looks pretty good for Filatima arizonella as seen here, including the golden-metallic reflections on the head and thorax.

The smaller moth is also a gelechiid, but I can't see it well enough to make a guess.

something like genus Fascista in the Gelechiidae?

Only 1 species is illustrated at BG or MPG. Presumably there are 4 or more around...
