PYROPS SULTANA

These strange bugs with long 'noses' are some of the most peculiar insects in the world.

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.

From the nymphs that shoot fiber optics from their behinds to the treehoppers that look identical to leaves, planthoppers comprise a superfamily of insects that never ceases to amaze.

The larger members of the planthopper group of insects, some lanternflies can grow up to three inches long.

Lanternflies got their name from the misconception that their long protrusions glow in the dark.

Hundreds of species of lanternflies live all throughout the world's tropical and subtropical regions, and some are even native to North America. Be sure to keep an eye out for these intriguing insects!
