Hello,
To me it IS D. nakanonis, it is the Long-nosed Planthopper that appears in several SE Asian countries. In Thailand, where I live, it is the usual species.

Don't be afraid of Rang & Location. They are things that change over the years so even if literature says it does not appear on the Philippines, it is possible that it in the meantime very well appears in that area. Seeing quite a bit of postings here from the Philippines that all appear to me D. nakanonis, plus a link to another spotting of D. nakanonis on the Philippines gives me the impression that literature needs an update as far as range is concerned. Here the link https://www.flickr.com/photos/diazseptsi...

Best regards
Joe

Hello Viv.
Living in Thailand I have the experience that Long-nosed Planthoppers are of the species Dictyophara nakanonis.
The species D. asiatica is in fact a European species, but as it also appears in Irn, Kazakstan it is called D. asiatica, being a synonym of D. europaea. As far as I know D. europaea does not appear in Thailand, but D. nakanonis does. I have a friend entomologist on Koh Samui also finding D. nakanonis locally, and I myself have found one (!) in my garden in NE Thailand.
Just to give you input.
Best regards
Joe

Thank you very much DrNamgyalT.Sherpa!
I know what you mean with having only a phone camera with you, I had a couple of occasions where I could only use my Nokia N8, which has an excellent camera but sometimes (birds) it's not enough to cover the distance. These shots are also handheld, as I don't carry the tripod with me in the forest. I walk through the forest with my 100-400mm on the camera and the 100mm macro on my belt. I first shoot with the big lens, if like in this case with the skimmers there is a chance to get closer I change the lens and shoot macro...

Thanks!
By accident I found it. Someone ID'ed the Owl Fly for me and I checked at the Checklist of Indian Neuropera. It's a checklist, no photos, except one: the Ant Lion I was looking for in my mind. So I found two Neuropera today and that makes me happy, as it is a unknown group of insects, but some specimen are beautiful!

Thank you Gilma. I would love to teach photography, certainly to dedicated students, as it is my passion since long time. Unfortunately I stay in Thailand which is not even close to Costa Rica :)
