Eurybrachid Planthopper

Platybrachys sp.

Description:

This interesting planthopper was grey-brown and well camouflaged amongst the leaf litter. It had a broad head and eyes well separated. Wings held flat had rounded trailing margins with two black dots, anterior to which was a blurred streak of ochre. A broad wide band of white was seen across the middle of both wings and this was easily visible from a distance.

Habitat:

Spotted amongst dry leaf litter in an open eucalyptus forest - Churchill National Park.

Notes:

These are associated with eucalyptus trees and the hoppers feed on plant sap.
family: Eurybrachidae
