The pics are a bit fuzzy but it looks like Plutella xylostella, Diamondback moth. Yponomeutoidea, Plutellidae

wrong resting posture for P. xylostella, which sits flat to the substrate.
This species exhibits the classic gracillariid resting posture, with fore and mid legs together, propping up the body, with the tip of the abdomen touching the substrate.
There are at least four black and white gracillariids that look similar to this, and without clear photos it's not possible to put a species, or even genus, to this illustration.
