Moved, Eudarcia simulatricella
Moved from Butterflies and Moths. Nice!

Ridiculously happy to get your comment. Not that I want any bug to be rare, but when you find something, yeah, you kinda want it to be something not commonly seen. ;-)

Eudarcia simulatricella?

 
sure looks like it to me
These are apparently tricky, based on comments on other photos. I've added one more photo in case that helps!
