Small insect (grasshopper..?), looks as if it's made of tiny feathers.
Found on the porch of my friends house in Indonesia, on the outskirts of the ciry.
Lovely and such a huge eye!
Wow it looks a bit like a Fighting Fish. what a beautiful creature. Well spotted!
What an interesting insect! It looks like it's made out of white yarn. I'm very curious what it is.
I am not sure if this is really the one from the link, I wrote "similar". But I have some doubts about Phromnia intacta. The "hairs" in Phromnia intacta are usually much longer and feet are more grayish than whitish like in yours. I don't know if this is a younger nymph or an older one with worn and reduced hairs.Maybe some "flatty" cracks know more about this one.
Thanks for the quick response!! :)
I think bayucca is right. An incredible photo.
I think this is a Flatidae or Flatid Planthopper and most probably a nymph. In the link you see a similar example:http://www.flickr.com/photos/itchydogima...
