Chorotypus sp. - A spectacular grasshopper which mimics dried leaf for protection. Due to its almost perfect camouflage, it is hard to spot making it quite rarely seen in the wild. From the front it looks quite flat like an actual leaf too. Turns out it glows under ultraviolet light too.
Found at night low on the forest floor vegetations in a lowland primary rainforest.
Spotted recently during a macro nightwalk trip with fellow PN member - Albert Kang.
