Similar to Acleris literana

Some other NT volunteers and I found a tiny (10mm) dish bug with markings identicle to this when working on Ludshotte common in August, but have not been able to identify it. It had the same markings as the acleris literana but no wings, dish shaped, with a white dot at the nose end. We only managed to get a very blury photo as it was too tiny for the camera to focus on. Any ideas?

Had its bits done

Has now been seen by a tame expert and had its genitalia examined confirming the ID.
