Not a Crambid

I don't think this is a Crambid moth. The overall shape and costal streaks make me think it is probably a Tortix, but hard to tell which. A side on photo would help if you still have the specimen.

Tortricid

Looks like Epinotia tenerana but needs lateral view as there a a few similar species.
