I was really amazed when I saw this bug on the floor in my guest house. I just realised that right before this insect appeared I reset the counter from my camera. I made sure to take as many pictures as I could, and the next moment it jumped/flew away.
Looks like a really strange critter, didn’t find anybody from the local people to identify it. It was January this year in the wet season on the Indonesian Island Bali in the center of Ubud.
I was there for 3 months and never saw it again.
This is an immature Planthopper in the family Eurybrachyidae, known as an Eurybrachyid Planthopper. We have received numerous submissions from Australia, and you may see photographs of many species on the Insects and Spiders of Brisbane website. We suppose some of the Australian species may also be found in Indonesia.
