Gorgeous moth! The moth in the link is Chlorhoda thoracica, which I do not necessarily think this species is, since your spotting has a red forewing outline.

It appears the genus has different spellings. My suggestion link provides the genus name as Chlorhoda, whereas BoldSystems classifies the genus name as Chloroda. I think the correct spelling is Chlorhoda, as searching Chlorhoda provided many more results of the genus this moth belongs to.
