I don't think this is identifiable - I can't see its head parts clearly enough.

Author's notes

These tiny moths dart quickly around from plant to plant, when at rest their wings seem to fold around them like a shawl.

Sorry about the photos - I will have another go at photographing them - walking in the bush disturbs them.
