Female Spelobia, not always the easiest to do, even with a specimen...

If I head to make a guess, it would be Spelobia manicata.

Middle leg, first tarsal segment longer than second one. Wing a bit darkened.
But I have to admit, that this is most certainly not a solid identification :-)

It is a female of Spelobia nana, you can see most of the relevant setae on the mid tibia in the second image.
