Stiliger smaragdinus from Milne Bay, PNG
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: This species of sap-sucker looks just like a piece of its green algal food, Caulerpa sp. – a marvellous example of camouflage. This picture doesn’t show the head, so you cannot see the black band like a ‘mask’ that runs over the eyes and is characteristic of this species.
