Two Awesome Insects from Panama

Posted by David Moskowitz on September 29, 2009 at 7:26 PM

I'm certain that if you don't find these two insects awesome you are:

Not a bug addict


I photographed these in Panama on Barro Colorado Island....

Lanternfly 2-27-08 Barro Colorado Island

I ALWAYS wanted to see one of these and was lucky enough to find one on BCI. I'm pretty sure it is Fulgora laternaria. It's just an awesome insect. Check out this closeup of it's head...

And if this bug isn't cool enough, here is another amazing one that was attracted to my blacklight:

Reticulated planthopper (Pterodictya reticularis) 2-25-08    

This species is apparently also a Fulgorid, like the species above. TheFulgoridae are apparently closely related to cicadas, but more primitive. The white "plumes" on this insect are a waxy secretion. I read online that the caterpilars of a few small butterflies feed on this waxy substance, though I cannot find anything but the one website to confirm it. I'd love to know if anyone has any information on this...

I've posted more photos of Panama insects in the photos category. Enjoy!

Funny? microBlogs like Twitter and faceBook have taken up the time that I would have spent posting things here. And why not, they are so much better, I mean in the sense that ccna wireless Everyone else?s posts are right there too.So, headed to PDX in a few days to compete in the USBC. Just need to find a few hours more to pull it all together. In prep hdi certification for the NWRBC, Billy Wilson came up and cracked the whip on me for a few days, this go around he?s in the competition, that and working full time plus, I?m sure, at his new shop BARISTA, in Portland, OR; his hands are full!

It has been a great change for me? work is good most of the past two weeks I have been 70-640 latest dumps working with Terry Z. and Dave Ringwood (the two leads on this project) restoring a Marzocco GS2 Paddle Machine and a Single Group GS Semi-Auto. Things are coming together quite ccip nice with both of these Machines (we?ll have them both at the Espresso Parts Booth at Coffee Fest North West? the 2 Group will be fired up and ready to go!)

Thank you for posting this. My husband saw one of these in Panama today and used his cell phone to send me the pic. I am a retired science teacher and your site helped me identify it. Thanks again and awesome pictures!
