Tiny leaf bite marks

Something is hitting my lettuce at night. I am pretty sure it is at least slugs and cut worms. I think there is also a 3rd pest. I always struggle with cutworms. I see a lot of slugs and use sluggo and hand pick often but they are a problem. I put down DE and whatever made these bite marks went through DE 2 nights in a row. One night I figure they could eat leaf get cuts and die the next day. 2 nights means DE is not stopping it. I had the same issue last year. What do you think? The biggest leaf in this pic is the size of my pinky nail - small. Mice? Seems small and not enough earten for mice. I am in the garden several times a day this is definitely at night.
