Dear Bug Forum, does anyone know what this is!  I bought a case of insects from a charity shop and this one has no label.  I have tried the internet but have not come up with anything, so would be grateful if you could tell me what it is.   Many thanks.

    Thank you for posting the photo. My Canadian friend from the Montreal Insectarium sais: "this is a Fulgoridae from Asia of the genus Penthicodes". The Fulgoridae are a family of true bugs also known as Lantern Flies. Here is a photo of a similar insect.

    I hope this helps.

    Yours truly,
