This moth was found at the edge of woodland in the Carlisle area yesterday, and was measured at about 6mm in length.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

I'd suggest maybe something in the genus Epinotia - what about immundana? Had a couple in my garden on Monday that looked very similar, and that's what I had them down as.

I would say this was Pammene splendidulana (Guenée, 1845) and quite likely to be a good record so worth getting it checked.
