Have done more checking via Ispot

This is Psychidae, I think but having seen obs & links on Luffia I am not sure on it being Luffia .Size & shape etc. could be wrong.Help please or shall I put this on as Psychidae?

Play safe...

I doubt anyone could go further than Psychidae with confidence without massive close ups or until an identifiable moth hatches out down the line.
