Sitting on my left hand thumb..
Interesting.... Pictures of Lycorma delicatula in the net match the spotting. However, I saw this same picture of Vasanth IDd as Epiptera europea in these links: http://www.environmentalgraffiti.com/off..., http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:R..., http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bestand:Red.... The other Epiptera europea pictures in the net are very different from this picture: http://roggin.canalblog.com/archives/201..., http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Epipte....
What a gorgeous creature, and lovely detailed pics! Awesome spotting :)
Thanks Chun... Its Indian link clearly shows what it is exactly...http://www.frontlineonnet.com/fl2818/sto...
Like what AshishNimkar said, most likely planthopper.http://www.whatsthatbug.com/?s=madai&...
As per legs style its a Planthopper say snout Planthopper.
Very beautiful spotting. Unique. Thanks for sharing. When looking at this shot an image comes to my mind: "Notredame hunchback " :-)
this guy lokks really funny!
I don´t think is a Shield bug or any other Hemipteran. The structures in the base of the antennas are typicall from Homopterans. And since it has a bizarre head I guess is a Fulgoridae
Its a nymph of shield bug.http://www.pbase.com/dougsmit/image/8114...
So fantastic! How small it was?
Great photo, and a really unique find.
Perhaps a function similar to the lantern bug. Nectar feeding??
Cool and horny. haha.
How interesting! Nice spot!
If it lives in the water,the periscope like nose might aid in breathing.
I wonder what is the purpose of that periscope like nose. I mean, such a tool must have a very specific one.
What a strange critter! I'm with ctsetan, bring on the ID please!
now this one's id i am waiting to know :) beautiful shot .... is it sitting on ur knee ???
