Kathydid juvenile identification
« on: Thu, 21 June 2018, 02:57:07 PM »
Hi there,

I found this kathydid well camouflaged at Coesewijne nature reserve on 27th of may 2018.
As you can see from the photos it's not the smallest of species, but I can't really give you a very accurate size estimation.

Any idea on the species?

Thanks,
Dimitri

Nice! :in_love:

This is clearly a female nymph in the subfamily Pterochrozinae. And although I'm not certain about it's further ID, I'm willing to place a small bet that it turns out to be Pterochroza ocellata.

Cheers, Auke :)
