Description:

A small goldish-coloured moth the size of a clothes moth, but with amazing long antennae - quite impractical! I can't find it in my books.

Antennae

The antennae length also implies this species rather than N. schwarziellus. But I suspect dissection is the best bet to be sure of the ID here.

Agree N. metaxella most

Agree N. metaxella most likely from shape - rounded wing tips - and can just see a dark spot in the middle of the wing which is also a metaxella feature. But hard to see from the photo angle.
