Spiky pygmy devil

Discotettix belzebuth


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.


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