Hi, I saw this small fly (first thought was Drosophila) sitting on my orchids.
The body is about 4 mm lang, the wings about 8 mm.
We quickly identified your Derbid Planthopper as Proutista moesta thanks to the Foto Biodiversitas Indonesia website.
Thank you Daniel,
and it’s bad 😉
Hi again Ricci,
The order Hemiptera, which includes Aphids and Scale Insects as well as many plant feeding True Bugs like Stink Bugs, has a large percentage of significant agricultural pests.
