What kind of moth is it then?

No problem. The spots look larger on your moth than the dull flat body.

I think it is the dull flatbody moth

I think the wing shape matches up well. I don't think the spots are visible because of the angle.

It's not spotty enough to be H. anisocentra. Looks like a Elachistidae sp.:http://bugguide.net/node/view/43958, I think that's as far as it can be taken.

Hi Captain! I've suggested an ID for you to look into, but I can't really tell based on the photos. Maybe you remember how it looked like.
