I have to say that none of these moths looks like *Tinea pellionella*
or *Phereoeca
uterella. *My guess is that they are all accidentals from outside. I'm
happy to have a look at some specimens, and will be able to say if they are
one of the pest species, but my familiarity with the North American "wild"
microlepidoptera borders on the non-existent, so approaching a local
lepidopterist might be your best bet for a definitive answer.
Best wishes
