PYROPS PYRORHYNCHA

Pyrops is a genus of planthoppers that occur primarily in southeast Asia, containing about 70 species. They are fairly large insects, with much of the length due to an elongated, upcurving, snout-like projection of the head. The wings are generally brightly patterned in contrasting colors, and they are popular among collectors.

Planthoppers are insects in the infraorder Fulgoromorpha. They are true bugs (Hemiptera), with over 12,500 described species.

Planthoppers are usually found near their individual food plants. Some species are polyphagus (eat many kinds of foods), while others are limited to certain types of plants. Some feed on woody plants, others on nonwoody plants.

Planthoppers are well-camouflaged in the leafy foliage that they feed on, effortlessly jumping from one plant to another with surprising speed.Color varies from camouflage greens, tans, browns, grays, and black to pinks, beige, blue, teal, and other unusual colors. Most have mottled patterns, while others have bold stripes or bands. They are cryptic mimics: their body shape and colours look like leaves and other plant parts in their environment. They either walk very slowly or hop like grasshoppers.

Nymphs vary a lot, too. Some are covered with a cottony waxy coating for protection.

Fulgoroidea are the most morphologically variable of all auchenorrhynchan superfamilies, ranging from 1mm to over 9cm in length and exhibiting extensive variation in head shape, wing venation, and genital morphology.
