    Default The thorn between the thorns

    ID: Eggplant horned planthopper

    One of the most interesting form of planthoppers, this triple thorned beauty is usually seen around in the nature trails in and around Mumbai. The peculiar specimen had placed itself between the thorns of the plant, almost in the middle, almost resembling (may be a stretch) the thorns of the plant. Unlike other planthoppers, which almost mimics the leaves of the plant, these tend to mimic the thorns of the plant, a good way to get distracted and could be an effective way to wade of predators too.
