Definitely a Pyralid.....of which there are, in scientific terms, a
gazillion slightly different species, many requiring genitalia
dissections.   However, on a perusal of Covell and MONA, i'll make my guess
out to be Blephoromastix ranalis - who's common name is Blephoromastix
ranalis.  See, who said I can't use "vulgar" names!!?
