Emma, I think that suggestion may be as specific as you can get. I will look later, if you are interested in finding a possible species.

The moth was able to escape thru a rip in the mesh.

Hmm...Emma, I may be able to get to subfamily or even luckier, genus, though these Plume moths may be the most closely related moths!
