My kindly Commentor suggested one of the Elachista family but added that it was almost certainly too early in the year for the obvious candidate, E. albifrontella. I had come to the same, very tentative conclusion myself from the photos in the Micro-moth Bible. But it was a puzzle. This is a distinctively-marked moth but not exactly like any of those illustrated in the book.

I have been emailing by chance, through a mutual friend, with another giant of the UK's moth world, Jeremy Holloway (his middle name may well be Martin, I don't know) and he has actually had moths named after him. This is an honour that I dream not of. My little friend apicipunctella will do for me.
