Had a nice bug trip to Kaeng Krachan at the weekend and spotted two lantern bugs: a Pyrops spinolae and a Saiva gemmata.

I found this lantern bug last month in Khao Sok. First i thougt it is Pyrops viridirostris but the nose is not blue.
Someone told me that could be Pyrops condorinus.

Am not sure. if it is Pyrops spinolae condorina, theres very little info on it, other than its as a sub-species of Pyrops spinolae and has only been mentioned as being recorded in Vietnam according to literature. Of course that does not mean it is not but I think you would need someone who knows the taxonomy very well to make the call. Could be a morph or variant. could be WB issue. Great find if it is though!!

There's a new group on Facebook set up by Pee Pisuth called Cicadidae and Fulgoridae of Thailand, You could try for an ID there

Fantastic! Here is the original description:

I suspect this will be a surprise to many and that its not been recorded for quite a while because its missing on many lists. Another one for Thailand - fantastic!

Aphaena submaculata and Aphaena dissimilis photos have been popping up from Khao Yai so I had a quick visit to grab some shots........ I had seen disimillis before so I headed for the same area and found both species straight way:

Pyrops viridirostris from Huai Kha Khaeng.
First time for me, found them at two locations.




And there were a lot of Pyrops spinolae around.
