micro moth

assumed this was a caddis fly as it came to light trap with others, but looking at the pic i realised it is probably a micro moth.

This is indeed a caddis fly. Caddis flies are the closest relatives to the Lepidoptera and there are many similarities with some of the more "primitive" microlepidoptera.
