Micro Moth id from SW Arabia

Hi guys
My birder friend Jem , sent me pictures for some moths from the southwest of Saudi Arabia , I knew all Macrolepidoptera moths which he sent except these which I think (Microlepidoptera).
The area is under the African wild zone , but that does not prevent it from knowing it.
So can any one help about?
Good luck

I woud say it was certainly a micro and probably in the Crambidae - but I don't know the species.
