Meet the planthopper! It’s one of 60+ new species found in the rainforest-dominated mountainous region of southeastern Suriname. Note the conspicuous waxy fronds at the end of its body. It’s theorized that they might mimic the anthers of flowers to help the insect camouflage itself. http://news.discovery.com/animals/new-species-found-in-tropical-rainforest-pictures-131002.htm#mkcpgn=fbsci1
