Treehopper - Membracis buctoni

Posted by
Vaido (Võrumaa, Estonia) on 17 August 2020 in Animal & Insect.

Küürtirtlased on suur sugukond, kuhu kuulub umbes 3 000 liiki. Ligikaudu pool küürtirtlastest elab Lõuna-Ameerikas. Selle sugukonna liikide iseärsuseks on eesselja pikk väljakasve, mis võib troopilistel liikidel olla äärmiselt kummalise kujuga.
