Pyralidae from Pitstone

I found this wandering about on Pitstone Hill last week.  Any chance it can be identified.

  1. It looks like one of the two very similar Delplanqueia (formerly Pempeliella)species which were recently split, either dilutella or inscriptella. The Entomologist's Record & Journal of Variation had a paper on the subject in the Sept/Oct 2015 issue. It is expected that our records locally will refer to inscriptella but dissections will be necessary to prove it. Whichever one it is, it is certainly well established on Pitstone Hill.
