Female of Phasmid from the genus Centrophasma. Quite a large Phasmid, around 10 cm in body length, with sturdy body and spines on her thorax. She has small/false wings which she is not able to use to fly. At the time I saw her, she was carrying an Egg as shown in close-up pictures #1 and #2. Her Egg is elongated in shape like a tube. She carries her egg and will deposit her eggs among crevices of plants/substrate.
