Life is amazingly complex. Just when I thought insects could not get any weirder, this observation https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/66743054 by @vania35 comes under the “Unknown” observations list.
At first, I thought it was an insect infected by a Fungus, so I labeled it as a Fungi. Later on, fortunately, someone else corrected my mistake by labeling the specimen as Lystra pulverulenta. I search online for “Fulgariods”, but there does not seem to be much on this type of insect. I welcome all information to elaborate and elucidate on this unique type of insect.
