Asiophlugis Temasek by melvynyeo Asiophlugis Temasek by melvynyeo
It is a small light greenish katydid with distinctly huge eyes. They are known to be predatory. The wings of mature adults are reduced, although the males used their forewings to produce stridulation to attract females. Long movable spines or spurs on fore tibiae are thought to be used for hunting. The biology of the species, or the subfamily for that matter, is still poorly known.
