SpeciesSasima sp.
LocalityPapua, Indonesia
DescriptionA spiny helmeted katydid from the rainforest of southern New Guinea. The bristly armaments on this juvenile specimen serve not only to deter predators, but also to disguise the insect in the mossy forest understory. Helmet katydids (Phyllophorinae) comprise some of the world's largest species.
