Flatid planthopper

Taparella sp.


"Flatidae are a family of Fulgoroid plant-hoppers. They are cosmopolitan in distribution and are distinguished from others in the superfamily by a combination of characters. Adults of some species have brightly coloured wings and are easily identified but the identification of species often requires dissection and comparison with identification keys. In the subfamily Flatinae, the body of adults is flattened laterally and the tegmina are tent like."
