Yes we do Ashish. The world is too huge to embrace, creatures are too overwhelming to attend, that is why we do have our field specialization. we might contribute on avian studies regionally but we also do need help/mentors on the other fields.

Sure we do appreciate all these creatures and life with awe to the Almighty Creator.

Agnes and Kdon... request you to believe in yourself... there is no Guru anywhere for you. Understand what life is. And Project Noah is great source for all of us... Keep spotting every life you find.... and every spotting is learning opportunity for yourself and every viewer of spotting. Last year I do not knew what is an organism is called... my all knowledge is developed with Project Noah...only. Same thing you can develop within you... so keep spotting and sharing.... :)

thanks Ashish, please be patient on guiding us with bugs

@Kdon, Ashish would be our guru :) I also just started learning about them this September, and Nuwan, Keith and other PN members have been always helpful.

you would be my guru on bugs life Agnes, thanks a lot

Hi Kdon. Common name would be Leaf-footed Bug. Scientific name is Family Coreidae. You can change scientific name later if ever genus/species would be determined.

I'm not really keen on bugs, Keith and Agnes, so how should this be named and the Scientific Name would be?

Nice detail on the head. This looks like some kind of Leaf-footed bug. Family = Coreidae.

These bugs look menacing in close-ups! :) This looks like a leaf-footed coreid bug.
