The family Fulgoridae is a large group of hemipteran insects, especially abundant and diverse in the tropics, containing over 125 genera worldwide. They are mostly of moderate to large size, many with a superficial resemblance to Lepidoptera due to their brilliant and varied coloration. Various genera and species (especially the genera Fulgora and Pyrops) are sometimes referred to as lanternflies or lanthorn flies, though they do not emit light.
"Tree Lobsters" I'm not pinning this because of the picture, but the story behind it. These bugs were thought to be extinct since 1920, but 24 were found on a TINY rocky island... under its one bush. A group of scientist removed 4 of the bugs and have started a successful rehabilitation plan.
