I think this is Digitivalva pulicaria a tiny micro, not much bigger than a Diamondback.
When I first started moth-trapping a few years ago, I was disappointed when I saw a Pebble Hooktip in the trap whch flew off before I could pot it. This morning I at last had another, albeit rather battered.
I also had another White-line Dart, Elephant Hawkmoth and six Buff Ermine amongst others. The Common/Lesser Common Rustic season has well and truly started with four of these unidentifiable noctuids.
