A crazy looking bug

Amazing wonders of nature

The Lichen Katydid

The Lichen Katydid or Markia hystrix represents a recently discovered new genus of the katydid. Just like all katydids, it remains a master of camouflage. However, this rather incredible species excels at this, even among other katydids.

Given the extreme difficulty in studying this invertebrate in its natural habitat, entomologists also know very little about this fascinating creature. Sadly, it faces the threat of extinction, due to the continued devastation of its natural habitat, just as many other creatures now do. (ourbreathingplanet.com)
