Pseudophasmatidae, Stratocleinae, Stratocleini, Parastrotocles multilineatus, might be the male (?).

I thought about stick insect - but with it's coloring it won't be very camouflaged!
I will look up the genus you suggest - thank you.

I think this is a stick insect (Phasmida), reminds me of genus Pseudophasma. But I'm not sure...

I have NO idea what this insect is - not even sure where to start.
