Look closely and it resembles a leaf, great camouflage. This item is difficult to obtain. These insects have their bodies slightly flattened and the forewings of the females cover the whole of the abdomen. They are found from the tropical north, where they frequently feed on trees and grasses, to the south where they are often found on shrubs.
