Why?

Pale golden head, central yellowish band on thorax, light patch on the side (on the wing). Is there a better ID, or a reason why not this one?

The confusion species is Monopis obviella, which is a tad smaller, perhaps a little more contrasting between main colour of wings and and pale streak along the "back".
