Black and White Moth

A small black moth from the summer time, either Syncopacma larseniella or S. taeniolella or S. cinctella (Lepidoptera: Gelichiidae).  According to UK Moths (here), you really need microscopic dissection to distinguish these species properly, so I will leave the classification as Syncopacma sp.
