Bugs That Look Like Leaves: Do They Exist in Your Garden?

Insects That Look Like Leaves: Do They Exist in Your Garden? 

Homiful.com -- Have you ever been wandering through a garden or park, enjoying the nice fall weather and the view, until you come upon something that frightens you? It's most likely nothing more than fallen leaves from their branches. Or was it a bug? Let’s learn more about these marvels of natural camouflage!

Buffalo Treehopper (Stictocephala Bisonia)


This bug is a vibrant green in color and has a triangular form that helps them camouflage in as thorns or a twiggy protuberance. The buffalo treehopper is a common treehopper in Kansas and throughout the United States. They stop by common tansy, coneflower, common boneset, and Queen Anne's lace flowers. 

Mantide fantasma (Phyllocrania Paradoxa)


If you prefer something odd and bizarre, you won't be able to get beyond Phyllocrania paradoxa. The high crown, as well as its form and color, flawlessly disguise the ghost mantis as a withered leaf. The ghost mantis may be found in open ground and on densely branched shrubs, bushes, and trees.

Cryptophyllium Limogesi


Another insect that looks like a leaf! You can see how unique and gorgeous Cryptophyllium limogesi is. Apart from its shape, its color is also very similar to leaves, right?

Cantor's stick insect


Not only do they resemble leaves, but there are also some bugs that look like sticks. This Cantor's stick insect is one of them. Native to Malaysia, this precious insect mainly feeds on guava leaves and is a master at camouflaging among tree branches. You can hardly see it in the wild if you don't look closely enough.

Dead Leaf Grasshopper (Chorotypus gallinaceus)


A superb grasshopper that disguises itself as a dried leaf for safety. Its wings resemble those of a dead leaf, which is brown in color. It is difficult to notice because to its almost perfect camouflage, so it is rarely seen in the wild.

Green Cone-headed Planthopper (Acanalonia conica)


This bug has a pointed head and commonly lacks stripes along the inner edge of its forewings. Two little black spots are spotted between the wings. Acanalonia conica may be found on a wide range of plants, including ornamentals, herbs, fruit trees, and vines. A. conica, in particular, has been identified as a pest of grapes and ginseng.
