Thanks for looking bayucca.
I think the Peritornenta genus is closest.
P. circulatella is a bit different and probably out of range.
You would expect this distinctive pattern would be easy to find.

Depressariidae? Peritornenta sp.?? Not really happy with Peritornenta circulatella, although colors and shape are nicely matching, however, the markings not really...
