An insect of very quiet behavior. Their only form of defense at first is hiding behind the leaves where he likes to stay.
This specimen was found in the Brazil's interior, state of Minas Gerais, an area dominated by coffee production where there are very few remnants of the its original rainforest.
One of the most exotic and diverse insects that I know. There are so many similar species that I do not know if it would be possible to identify this just for this photo.
