Took pics of this bug last week. Lake Tinaroo up on the Atherton Tablelands above Cairns, Far North Queensland. I seems to have moth like antennae but a mosquito like body.
Thanks

Midge

Hi Andy,
This is a Midge in the family Chironomidae, and it is a male judging by his feathery antennae.  We do not have the necessary skills to further classify this Midge to the genus or species level, but we have linked to a similar image on BugGuide for reference.
