GARGANTUOIDEA TRIUMPHALIS
Triumphant Giant Stick Insect

Gargantuoidea triumphalis is a species of Phasmid from the family of Lonchodidae.

An impressive insect with a very good flight in spite of its size (around 13-14 cm). The general colouration is light brown with some whitish patches. The back of the abdomen has a large dark blotch. The mesathorax of both sexes has about 17-20 lateral spines. much larger in the females.

Lonchodidae is a family of stick insects, with more than 150 genera and 1,000 described species.

The subfamilies Necrosciinae and Lonchodinae, formerly part of Diapheromeridae, were determined to make up a separate family and were transferred to the re-established family Lonchodidae in 2018.

Diapheromeridae is a family of stick insects (order Phasmatodea). They belong to the superfamily Anareolatae of suborder Verophasmatodea.

The family contains some huge species, e.g. Paraphanocles keratosqueleton which can grow to over 30 cm long.

Four subfamilies are placed here according to the Phasmid Study Group. The re-established Lonchodidae, placed as a subfamily in the Diapheromeridae in older treatments, now contain the Lonchodinae and the Necrosciinae. The Palophinae are the smallest subfamily by far and not particularly diverse. The other two subfamilies, with 3 tribes each, contain the highest diversity of Diapheromeridae.

The subfamilies are now: Diapheromerinae, Pachymorphinae & Palophinae.
