Hi,
I took a photo of this pair of ’rhinoceros cicadas’ in Mulu National Park in Sarawak, Borneo, Malaysia in 2005. Any idea what they are? Rhinoceros cicada, was what our guide called them, but that doesn’t help much!
Thanks

Fulgorid Planthoppers

Hi Miles,
These are Fulgorid Planthoppers in the family Fulgoridae, commonly called Lanternflies.  They are related to Cicadas, so Rhinoceros Cicada might be a local name that we hadn’t heard before.
