Lanternflies from Borneo

Hi Vin,
In April 2008, we posted an image of this spectacular Lanternfly in the family Fulgoridae, also from Borneo, but we were never able to identify the species. Perhaps one of our readers will be able to supply us with a species identification.

Update:  August 5, 2012
We are trying to identify some old postings and on Samui Butterflies BLOG we found this Fulgorid Planthopper identified as
Pyrops whiteheadi.  OrionMystery Blogspot confirmed that identification.  We finally got a more reputable confirmation on CalPhotos of UC Berkeley.

Location: Borneo
