Many warm greetings from the Dominican Republic. I saw this beautiful insect resting over the ceiling at the country house of a friend. All the time we spent on the terrace, this curious insect remained in that position. If it’s possible, can Whatsthatbug can give me any information on this peculiar insect.
Thanks in advance
Your file name was correct. This is a Stick Insect or Walkingstick in the order Phasmida. It appears a Stick Insect appeared on a Dominican Republic stamp in 1999 according to Asahi-net. We will continue to attempt to identify the species of Stick Insect you submitted.
Daniel, many thanks for your information and your support.
