High Elves are both in 5E/BG3.

Per the PHB, the description for High Elves breaks down Sun and Moon Elves from Greyhawk, Dragonlance, and the Forgotten Realms.

I would have liked to have them broken apart just for the sake of being thorough with tags, but oh well. At least there's a ton of colors to use for the player's own headcanon. (I saw one Youtuber make her High Elf look like her Moon Elf from other games.)
