Some loss of scales evident

Samll moth approx. 12mm
Very small moth approx. 10mm disturbed from a dead flower head.
This is a Plume Moth in the Pterophoroidea superfamily. I don't know these moths well and cannot offer a Genus nor species at this time.
Thanks for the clue Cathy. When I searched NS there is a Geranium Plume Moth and that is the plant it was on when disturbed.
