I think it's a Crambidae, I tried to search it but I found many similar species, I don't know if it's variable, I saw it for the first time so I really don't know how to ID it!

This is a species of Euchromius.
The most likely candidates are:
- Euchromius vinculellus
- Euchromius superbellus (which is paler)
See what you think...
Now I know why I couldn't find it ... on the UK Moth site it's not present
So, the pattern design of the upperside wing (black spots and the corner design with the orange strip) make me think more about E. superbellus.
The photo on lepiforum is taken near my home :-)
I get a few of this genus here; I still have some to ID...
