Golden Egg Bug

Phyllomorpha laciniata

Description:

A tiny thorny bug crawling between the grass. I have never seen it before and have no idea what it is. But thanks to your help now I know it's a Golden egg bug.

Habitat:

Found between short grass near a plant called Paronychia argentea, on a farm in Surman, Libya.

Notes:

They were two in the same area. Most likely male and female. Check out this clip I found on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a_l4ecs4...

It might be a specimen of Phyllomorpha sp. (Heteroptera: Coreidae: Phyllomorphini).
