Unidentified small bug

Is anyone able to provide me with the identity of the bug in the attached photo please?


Found on a fallen horse chestnut leaf it, and a second on I spotted on the same leaf, had a body length of about 1-3 mm, extended to around 5mm when the wings were included.

I wondered if it was a stage in the chestnut leaf miner as the horse chestnut tree at the foot of our garden is certainly affected. However, I didn't think moths went through a larval stage.

They moved around quite quickly, but as I was looking at them through a camera lens (90mm macro + 68mm worth of extension tubes) it was difficult to assess just how fast they really were.


Hoping someone can help
