Martin... hope these links will help...http://orthoptera.speciesfile.org/Common...http://www.discoverlife.org/mp/20q?searc...
Yes Ashish. We were both correct. In fact the reference following is wrongly named in my opinion http://www.treknature.com/gallery/Asia/I...
Thanks Martin... You must be correct with... Pseudophyllinae family.
JigneshShirke Sometimes Ashish is correct on his first suggestion. This is one of those times.You have an absolutely spectacular katydid. Katydids imitate leaves and are nocturnal arboreal insects from the family Orthoptera (including crickets and grasshoppers). They are not leaf insects (part of the stick insect family Phylliidae). Check link #3 showing toe pads - these never occur in Phylliidae.Here are some referenceshttp://www.flickr.com/photos/49876611@N0...http://www.flickr.com/photos/bettaman/30...http://www.flickr.com/photos/bettaman/30...
Interesting creature! Good.
Just write size of your spotted insect. It will be useful for all other users to identify this insect.
Thankx Ashish once again :)
