There is a image of a C. imperviata (female) on the MoV supporting disc which looked quite close to this specimen, but it was overall lighter looking i.e hindwing is quite dark.

I believe it is an Epyaxa species like sodaliata/subidaria or a Chrysolaretia species like gypsomela/imperviata. (If we could see male pectinate or ciliated antennae, that would at least settle the genus.) If you assume it is a dark specimen with the black margins of both wings enhanced by the photo, and the white areas subdued, the most likely match is C. gypsomela. But I'm suggesting stop at Larentiinae sp.

I like E. subidaria for this speciemen, which has the small peak on the third line by the costa, and which is missing in C. imperviata and C. gypsomela. I think the larger double bump in the second line does not match that in the second line of E. subidaria.
My experience with E. sodaliata is that it has variable light and dark shading in the various fascia, but the geometry of the dividing lines is constant.
