Insecta: Hemiptera: Auchenorrhyncha: Fulgoroidea: Fulgoridae
North Carolina State University Insect Museum
Taken 3-16-2010; Canon G11; 35 images (7x5)
"This drawer contains members of the insect family Fulgoridae. Fulgorids are plant-hoppers that suck plant juices with their straw-like mouthparts. Many fulgorids produce large filaments from "wax" cells near the end of the abdomen or as a fine waxy coating (seen in some of the GigaPans) that is mostly keto esters, chemically similar to that produced by scales and some aphids. Many fulgorids have enlarged head processes (that often look like a big nose, though they are really just an extension of the back of their head), which were once though to produce light; thus fulgorids are sometimes known as lanternflies."

This panorama was done as part of a larger collection digitization effort at the North Carolina State University Insect Museum, funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF DBI-0847924). The purpose of this image is to enable virtual browsing of our research collection. The snapshot feature of this website allows for annotations of these images, including: taxonomic determination of specimens, suggested corrections, questions, and loan requests.
