Looking at several Phyllidae, I think yours might be a Phyllium sp.. Please, verify!

I believe your map is incorrect. You may want to adjust it.

Wonderful find! Love it! Was this was found wild in Angkor, Cambodia or in an insect type collection in Mississippi? Your notes and map do not correspond.
