Stick Insect, Phasmid - Female


This Phasmid is rather small, around 3.5cm in length and its very scrawny like a needle. Weird behavior as it tends to curl up its tail.

Yea, that's true, especially when they are still at Nymph phase.

Oh ok! I used to keep a lot of stick insects so I thought I recognised it. Species can be very similar though!

Thanks, @Sam for the ID suggestion but this Phasmid is not a Carausius morosus. It is more likely a Phobaeticus.
