Scopula Wave
It looks like a Scopula Wave, probably either Scopula junctaria - Simple Wave - Hodges#7164 or Scopula quadrilineata - Four-lined Wave - Hodges#7165.

The problem with Waves is that they are spotted, where this one is marked with fine short dashes. Because of this (and also the wing shapes) my best guess is a #6677 Yellow-dusted Cream whose yellow dusting is just extremely faint. As I write this, I see that if I look at the small "tag" version of this image, I can actually see some lines like a yellow-dusted should have.
