Spiky pygmy devil


A small Orthopteran (grasshopper, cricket, katydid) has a dark brown and rough appearance that camouflages very well on dry vegetation. This genus of loghoppers is the most diverse in Borneo. Discotettix sp. Similar to D. belzebuth but could be an undiscribed one.


Found on a large decomposing dipterocarp tree log, also can be found on barks of live trees in Tawau Hills Park, Tawau, Sabah, Malaysia.


>>>Map accuracy: 1000m diameter. Sorry for my long absence from Project Noah, I have been recently accepted to study in the University of Malaysia Sabah (UMS) where I have been really busy for almost 2 months. Special thanks to JosipSkejo for the ID.
