I had found out about these a while ago. I haven't found any info on them yet but I'll keep looking. I love leaf footed bugs. Making this fellow BOTM ( Bug Of The Month ).

What a great blog you have going here for such a unique hobby for a 17 yr. old girl! I found it by accident, just passing through on "blogger next". I pray that you will be able to go to college. You are destined to become a great entomologist! Good luck to you!

This bug is the leaf footed Diactor bilineatus. It's a beautiful bug, I saw one this past weekend in Satipo, Peru and came across your blog article while doing some research on him. Comes from the Heteropteran insect order, more specifically the Coreidae tribe.

Check out my blog if you're interested in bugs. I am more into butterflies of the neotropical region (Central and S. America)

Goodness! I'm loving your blog. This will be of use for extra info on tropical butterflies.

And that's awesome that you saw one of these. I've only seen the ones that we get here and they're not at all this colorful ( unfortunately ).

Thanks for the link to your blog. I'm loving it and I've only browsed the first page! I'm looking forward to to utterly devouring it tomorrow when I get some proper sleep. ^.^

Thank you so much for commenting and giving me more info. I knew they were Heteropterans but that's all I really knew. XD

So I thank you for that. ^.^
