Also gen detted a micro Dave brought me round to check. It was pretty worn so not an easy ID based on external features. Having said that, I did tentatively arrive at what turned out to be the correct ID: Scarce Cosmet Mompha jurassicella. Living up to its common name (love them or loathe them) there are very few Norfolk records of this species, so he done well, again.
