This looks like a Crambid to me, but I've looked without success through many Crambid photos.

Moved from ID Request.

Paul, thanks very much.

Possible Tortricid
The shape and coloration reminds me of some of the Tortricid moths if you feel like sifting through that family.

Jason, thanks. I've gone through the Tortricids; possibly a Dicrorampha?
