I blew this image up 300% in Photoshop for a closer look. The main forewing line is just visible and has a strong kink suggesting Ectropis. Cannot see the antennae clearly, so no pectinations visible. Hindwing line is relatively straight with an upward kink visible on the LHS of the image as for E. excursaria.
