Do you know the name of this insect, please ? Does it make sounds ?
Thank you so much
We agree that this True Bug in the order Hemiptera is a Leaf Footed Bug in the family Coreidae, but we need to do additional research to identify the species.
Karl supplies an identification
Hi Daniel and Isabelle:
I believe this Leaf Footed Bug is probably Melucha quinquelineata. I also found this photo on Flickr. I couldn’t find much information other than it has been observed in Amazonia and Panama. Regards. Karl
