Family Pyralidae, Chrysauginae
Another exquisite dead leaf mimicking moth. This one mimics even the leaf's stem! Please, see photo #2.
The appearance more closely resembles Pyralidae, Chrysauginae rather than Tortricidae to me.
I love your second picture :-)
Amazing bit of evolution.Dave

Some sort of Tortrix moth perhaps?
