Fungi is more than minor interest

During the fungi extravaganza that was Saturday at Tophill Low NR, Doug Fairweather encountered this tiny moth.

After some time of looking through books and scouring the internet, the conclusion is that it is a possible Phyllonorycter species, none of which appear to have been recorded at Tophill Low NR. It is thought that it is possibly P leucographella Firethorn Leaf Minor.
