Tallula
Looks like one of the Tallula spp. (Pyralidae) shown here (starting at number 5590).

 
Tallula
Thanks, that genus does, indeed, look right. However, even if it were of the species closest in range to the location (watsoni, 5592), this record would still represent a modest extension of known range. However, that species is also the only one with a reasonable number of variants shown on MPG, so I find it hard to be sure that that is the beast. I have added another version of the picture to this record; one that has been darkened to reduce the glare.
