The tussock moths are a big group but there is a good link for you. You may need a local person to get definitive species.

Those tufts make me think of a tussock moth but its dorsal tufts may not appear until next molt, like my pink one did. Its a great photo when it contains extra information such as the old skin (exuvia). Well done.
