No exciting moths, but 1 micro for checking

Last night's warmth helped attract 237 moths to my UV Skinner trap in the garden. The top 3 species were Square-spot Rustic (45), Large Yellow Underwing (37) and Brimstone Moth (23). However, there were very few new moths for the year, the exceptions being 1 Feathered Gothic and 1 Broad-bordered Yellow Underwing.
I did find this micro which I haven't spotted before during the year. I think it is Bryotropha domestica (fw just over 5mm) but I thought I would check.
