Dawlish Warren Village moths

A slightly better moth night last night but still far fewer species than one might expect for mid-May. Only Shuttle-shaped Dart and Treble Lines in any numbers but a few singles of other species including this Figure of Eighty and an a micro moth that I cannot identify (possibly Aethes sp but very early for most likely species). Any guesses on i.d. would be welcome. The colouring on the image is accurate and the moth was just 9mm in length.
