Sorry, I did not read the comments! I was thinking Psilocorsis. Have been trying to move from superfamily to family. I will move back.

Probably Oecophoridae
The rounded/rectangular wings in combination with the elongate palpi curling above the head suggest that this is an Oecophorid, or as I like to call them, the "Confusionidae". I wandered through the plates on MPG and didn't see an obvious match in a cursory look.

 
Thanks for the reference
Only 192 specimens, I'm sticking with butterflies. Seriously, my guess is Kyoto moth based upon similarities at MPG Oecophoridae 1010.1.
