Fulgorid bug

Penthicodes farinosa


large insect, 2.5cm


tropical rainforest, coastal


I'm back! After 4 months is Southeast Asia (Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore) I'm finally back to Noah. I've missed the community and am ready to share my over 1000 spottings from the trip. This was the first fulgorid bug I spotted on my first day in Tangkoko Batuangus Nature Reserve. Fulgorid bugs/lantern bugs are some of my favorite insects, so it was really cool to see a bunch of these ones on the tree behind park reception.
