Habitat: Malaysia, unsure of where else
Status: Not Listed

This curious little bug is a member of the Tetrigoidea family that includes grouse locusts, pygmy grasshoppers, groundhoppers, and pygmy locusts. I’m not exactly sure what this fellow is – some sort of grasshopper/locust obviously mimicking a seed or dead leaf. The caption under the first photo pointed out that it was a Dolatettix sp. So I guess that’s helpful?

All I know is that it looks just like a miniature insect replica of a Spartan helmet. Am I right or am I right?

If you have more info on this creature, please post what you know in the comments! Thanks!
