Your letter to the bugman:  Hi
I have long wondered what this is, taken in the Gambia in 2008. Not sure if its a bug or a strange moth. I would be grateful if you could help ID it

Dear Richard,
This free-living Hemipteran in the family Fulgoridae is commonly called a Lanternfly.  There is a similar looking Lanternfly from Gambia posted to FlickR.

Location: Gambia
