great!absolutely awesome pic!and don´t bother with the missing (blocked) names, I´m younger than you and sometimes have the same problem. :-)
That is a Reticulate Planthopper, Pteridictya reticularis.
Wow, those are some bizarre-looking insects and such pretty pastel coloration. Such How big are they?
Hi Steven,Those are amazing insects. About how long are they? The wings seem to have no elytra. Bizarre!
- Dr. Rankenstein, thanks.- Scott, thanks for the name. It helps!- Wilma, they're around 3-4 inches long.- Adrian, yeah, interesting bichinhos. When they get scared, they sort of flutter away. I'll see if I can find another image.
Hello Steven, I see that someone has supplied the Latin name; great. I know that some members of this family, Fulgoridae I think, are taken as food items in other parts of the world [Madagascar, for example]. Though of course I wouldn't suggest sampling insects randomly, I'm prompted to ask whether you know of any edible insect species in your area, or "bugs" used for other purposes, like medicinally...Thanks,Davewww.smallstockfoods.com
