Hi Bugged! It’s me again, Cesar Crash, from São Paulo, Brazil.
You said once you’re not familiar with Proscopiidae, right? 2010/02/07/jumping-stick-from-patagonia-argentina/
I’m sending some pics of my little friend, it’s different from the Argentinian one. I took this one when it was a baby, I put in a plant (the same of the treehoppers) and it grown there, every weekend I used to look for it. I cannot find them in BugGuide. Searching in internet, I found some names like Tetanorhynchus sp., Stiphra robusta. Hope this pics should be useful.
Thanks so much for sending us some photos of a Jumping Stick or Stick Grasshopper from the family Proscopiidae. We found some nice photos on the Fauna of Paraguay web page. Stick Grasshoppers are endemic to South America.
