Can anyone identify this species of of moth? I live near Birmingham and I found this inside my house.
Any answers will be greatly appreciated.
Try White-shouldered House-moth Endrosis sarcitrella.
Thanks Florin and Mike!
You are both definitely correct, I've had a look at the online photos of them.
I concur with Florin.
And in case you were wondering, although it is not a clothes specialist, the wide range of things it eats (as a caterpillar) does include old clothes.
You can get a good description of it here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White-shouldered_House_Moth. That also gives a useful list of synonyms (under which names, you may find further information).
