Hi Marc,

Looks a good match for White-shouldered House Moth on UKleps:

Could you edit this observation so that it appears in the "Invertebrates" section? Just click on the "Edit" tab towards the top of the page and change the Group.

That's a good suggestion and I hadn't considered it, but having checked them I think the head shape is more like Endrosis (Plodia seems to have a concave bit at the back of the head).
