Hello Luciano!
As for me this species belongs to Blattodea order, most probably from genus Ectobius :>
Best regards,

I am not certain,but try looking up Cicada on the internet (Hemiptera)The antennae are rather short for Ectobius, he is a lovely creature!!

hello luciano,
sorry but i do not have any idea about the species, the image looks crisp, nice details of the insect and the leaf, lovely colours, well composed shot,
tfs & regards

Buen encuadre, luz y colores, aunque justa de enfoque.
Un abrazo Luciano y que tengas un buen Domingo (Domenica): J. Ignasi

Ciao Luciano, non ci hanno mai presentati, non lo conosco, ad occhio concordo con Radomir, bella macro abbastanza ben definita e nitida, buona domenica, ciao Silvio

Bonjour Luciano,

On voit bien les détails de cet insecte. Effectivement, ca ressemble beaucoup à l'ectobius sauf pour les antennes.

Bonne journée.

tres bon focus pour cet insecte, les couleurs sont bien juste un peu OE sur le dos mais pas grave
BG bien flou

Hello Luciano
