I am stunned. Finally I can get those few hours of sleep I have been needing so badly! Thanks Sarah (it reminds me of your prowess at the Pub Quiz)!
…only now I’ll have to kill it, as it’s obviously eating our trees!
Greetings Mr Attenborough – I believe the insect pictured here is in fact a Pterodictya reticulata more commonly known as a wax tailed planthopper. If you want to be sure however, I suggest you have a closer look and see if you can see traces of wax on the forewings or if your little friend is a lady, see if you can catch a glimpse of her anal tube which should also be covered in wax. You have no idea how many insects bottoms I have had to look at on google to find this information out for you!!! But … if it helps you sleep easier at night then obviously it’s well worth it.Sarah
