you learn something everyday!sedge moths and sedge!
I think the moth is called a sedge, rather than the plant! I'm assuming it's a moth, I really don't know
I'm probably out of my depth here, - but could this be a caddis fly? Unfortunately, I can't see the wings well enough to see if they are hairy.
I'd guess at a rather faded tortrix moth, but also out of my depth here!
Hi all,I also think it is a tortrix moth - possibly Bactra lanceolana but that is a very variable species and this photo is not really at the easiest angle to see the markings

I found this
Sedges are similar to moths but have no proboscis their wings are also covered in hairs, moth winga are covered in scales
When at rest the sedge wings are held in a tent shape over the abdomen
Looks like we've both learnt someting new!
