Common-Quaker
Description:

I know the bigger moth on the right is a Common Quaker but I'm thinking the smaller one on the left is too as there is some degree of overlap between Common and Small Quaker. The kidney mark on the smaller moth doesn't seem to be any narrower than on the bigger moth and both have a distinctive cross line on the outer part of the wing. Also I'm thinking that the bigger moth is a female and the smaller one possibly a male as their Abdomen's were very contrasting in size and shape.
