Plume moth

I don't see a lot of plume moths.  Today, whilst in the orchid meadow at Homefield Wood, I disturbed the attached plume, which to me looked tiny for a plume. I'd estimate the total wing span to be c15mm.  Is it possible to ID from this photo? I didn't have the proper lens, so it is heavily cropped and a bit bleached out by the sun.

  1. That's tricky due to the image quality. I'm wondering about Marasmarcha lunaedactyla
