Dichomeris sp.
Gelechiidae, Dichomeridinae

Allied to D. traumatias (illustrated in Smaller Moths of South East Asia; Robinson, Tuck & Shaffer, 1994) from Borneo.
Diakanoff (1967 [1968]: Microlepidoptera of the Philippines) used the taxon name Atasthalistis (a related Australian genus) for Dichomeris. The species in your photo is not in Diakonoff's work, though.
