maybe, but also maybe not.

Take a good look of what you can see of the ventral wing surface (the underside) from the lower photo and compare with the E. olivacealis underside - there is no pale orange at all in olivacealis, which also has characteristic heavy black fascia that are not present on lsp380's moth. I suspect this is one of two unidentified (and possibly undescribed) Endotricha species that occur in Hong Kong.

Endotricha is a difficult genus, and many of the species are only identifiable with certainty by dis-section, so unless the moth was retained, we will probably never know which species this is. E. olivacealis does occur in HK and several specimens have been dis-sected to confirm this, but there is still a need to obtain a small series of the unidentified species, one of which has been dis-sected and doesn't appear to match anything in the literature.

really have to see the patterns on the underside of the wing to know which Endotricha this is.

these are likely all females of Endotricha theonalis
