Found a pretty colour base for it, unfortunately the species wasn't given. Leaf rollers are such nice colour references, you have seen the two unicorn vomit moths I've linked in the shoutbox, after all.

The yellow really reminds me of huismoeders, wait let me look up the English name... gods their name is literally large yellow underwing, Noctua pronuba. But leaf rollers are way prettier indeed. I'm especially partial to the tiny delicate ones with a subtle sheen of gold to them.
I could have identified them from the Dutch name alone, considering they are called housemothers here, too. Yeeah, those were also a species I have looked at before deciding for a leaf roller dig, kind of my default idea when thinking of a moth with hidden, colourful hind wings.
When it comes to fancy and shiny, I'm thinking more of adelid moths, sometimes you can find lots of them throwing parties on Veronica plants.
