I doubt that it's possible to identify this one with confidence. Its palpi aren't visible, so it's not even certain that it is an Oecophorid, eg are the head scales rough enough for it to be an Edosa sp (Tineidae)? Chrysonoma euchrysa have a complex pattern of dark and darker shades with a purple sheen at the apex of the forewings - this one seems too plain.
