What type of moth is this?

Asked April 27, 2017, 7:25 AM EDT

Does anyone know what type moth this is? It is a brown reddish colour, it has large antennas, a small furry back and has dots on the back of wings. (We live in Lower Chittering, Western Australia).
Thank you

Hello- I'm way out of my range of expertise (Michigan, United States moths) but I found an on-line site on Australian moths that has a listing that looks pretty close:

You really need to find a lepidopterist from Australia to be sure. Sorry that I cannot help you more.
