Apioscelis bulbosa ?
Certainly one the oddest looking couples of the animal kingdom, these mating (or about to) Stick Grasshoppers are quite common in the Ecuadorian Amazon. The male is only about half the female's size, which is about 7.5cm long; they are green/brown and very well camouflaged among vegetation. They're often mistaken for stick insects (order Phasmatodea), but belong to the order Orthoptera.
