Also known as the spittlebug, this insect feeds on plants, using cutting and sucking mouthparts to extract the plant's sap. The wings are folded over the body, while its well-developed back legs are used for jumping great distances. On the head are compound eyes and sensory antennae. Magnification: x12 when printed 10 centimetres across.
