Crypsiphona ocultaria (Red-lined Looper Moth)

A moth landed outside my kitchen window.

Moths are usually dull in colour.  And so this one is no exception.
(Colour is usually of no particular importance to moths as they are often nocturnal.)

It turns out to be a Crypsiphona ocultaria (Red-lined Looper Moth or Red-lined Geometer).

The "red-lined" part of the name refers to the red markings seen on the undersides of the wings.
(This time, looking outside from inside the kitchen)

As no one can see its beautiful colour except from under the body,
I wonder what evolutionary advantage do the markings convey to this moth ???

More on Crypsiphona ocultaria:
    - It is a common moth found all over Australia.
    - The larva is green and feeds on eucalypt leaves.
    - When threatened the grub stands still, pretending to be a stick.
