    Explanation:

    When the antenna of a male moth detects tiny amounts of the chemical released by a female moth, the antenna is functioning as a receptor, as it is receiving the pheromones released by the female moth, from a distance away. The female moth is functioning almost the same way, but is instead broadcasting it instead of receiving it.
