This absolutely stunning Lanterfly species is Penthicodes variegata. It’s a prized specimen amongst insect collectors (yes, those exist) for obvious reasons. The electrifying colors of the underwings are completely hidden when the Lanternfly is in a resting position. However, its outside body isn’t exactly chop liver. Blues, greens, whites, and burgundy splotches cover its frame to disguise the shocking beauty that lies below. Talk about an impressive bug!
