Dear David,
Perhaps our readership will have better luck identifying this lovely, orange, diurnal moth since our initial search has not produced an answer for you.  We searched both Encyclopedia of Life Moths of Portugal and The Lepidoptera of Portugal.  We suspect this moth is either in one of the following families:  Geometridae, Pyralidae, or Crambidae.
