this photo was sent to an expert at the Oxford University Natural History Museum....he has never seen this species before. Any help in identifying it would be great...or is it a NEW SPECIES???
No, the female look like yours in coloration. There might be some variation, but probably mostly due to light angle and age. However, the male looks completely different without such wonderful colors.http://www.flickr.com/photos/orionmyster...
Oh NO! thanks bayucca. I am happy but disappointed at the same time...really thought it was a new species. do you think it could be a subspecies tho...the only other photos i can find online are of a v similar bug but different colouration. do the females tend to vary in colour? your hopefully....
Eurybrachyidae Planthopper, Chalia pulchra, female (!).Unfortunately it is not a new species, but still a very nice one!
does anyone have any idea about this amazing bug....it may well be a new species??
