This is another very small moth, similar to the pyrausta aurata.However the forewings aren't red and have no yellow markings.
Perhaps another type of pyrausta? I photographed it sitting on some lady's smock (aka cuckooflower).

Not a micro

but a noctuid (macro) moth. Smaller than quite a few micro-moths though,
