Re: Jims bug problem link now new link

Neat, huh? They are quite docile and unfazed by nudging and touching. So I just went out with a tape measure and laid it along side one of them. 3/8 inch, stem to stern. Really want to find out what they are and what their role in the universe is--besides just sitting around, that is.

My word, Jim, are those guys super!  You need to keep one just to
have it.  They look like a planthopper on steroids from outerspace.
I also thought they were part of the plant in the other image;
couldn't find a 'bug' there.

The colors and the form on these guys are so very cool.

Treehoppers do come in Technicolor......


Looking at this guy, shape of head and number of legs make me think
some type of totally exotic planthopper - how big are they?  I've
done a bit of a search but no luck on it; there are so many of these
things out there.
