   Phyllium celebicum


Leaf Bug (Phyllium celebicum) (PSG-128)

Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Arthropoda
Class: Insecta
Sub-Class: -
Order: Phasmatodea
Sub-Order: Aerolatae
Family: Phylliidae
Sub-Family: -
Genus: Phyllium
Species: calebicum
Year: -
Distribution: Phillippines, Sulawesi, Thailand.

The nymphs are brown, but with two pairs of distinctive light-green 1st & 2nd abdominal segments. The legs of nymphs have white stripes, which are very similar to Phyllium siccifolium, but the insect lacks the orange-tinting elsewhere. The nymph becomes green as it begins to eat.

Nymphs must not be offered new Bramble leafs, the ones that are still with "hairs". The new leafs contain some kind of chemical that will kill a nymph but is harmless to L3 nymph and up.

Females: got wings but are not capable of flight.

Males: are more slender then the females. They are capable of flight.

Diet: Bramble, Mango, Oak, Guava, Red/ Yellow Salmon Berry.

Status: For the 2nd time my whole culture have died off, shortly after becoming adults :(!.. looking for more!
