Maybe Small Grey - Eudonia mercurella

Observed: 23rd July 2013 By: DaveMDaveM’s reputation in Invertebrates

I found this moth but I am not sure what it is. I have tried to narrow it down and think it could be 1344 Eudonia mercurella. But 1340, 1341 and 1343 all look similar to it.
Can anyone help.
Thanks Dave

I agree with mercurella
but this group are notoriously difficult without a decent pic - which thankfully yours is.
the solid shading at the base of the wings and the two white lines which appear unbroken are diagnostic for me.
