Endotricha I think l because the costa is not straight i.e E. pyrosalis or E. ignealis. The degree of curvature suggests E. pyrosalis to me. Quoting 'Moths in the Act', p. 142: 'E. pyrosalis usually has a more pinkish hue and can be distinguished from E; ignealis by the genlre sinuation in the leading edge of the forewing'.
