The Bell bearer leaf-hopper

The Bell bearer leaf-hopper

The Bell bearer leaf hopper possibly has the oddest thorax amongst all insects. It emerges to be a leaf-hopper bearing a 1950’s modernist statue on its back. This 4mm leaf hopper is belongs to South America (maximum of the images I have got were taken in Brazil) and is a part of the Membracidae species which are identifies for their bizarre shapes. Numerous elements of the Membracidae family would create beautiful organic modernist parts. The expansion on its thorax splits simply and might be passed off in the place of the leaf-hopper by a predator. It is also conceived that the growth on this leaf hopper thorax may imitate an insect’s skull from the front.
