The erratic feeding pattern of this juvenile Malaysian Katydid (Ancylecha fenestrata) imparts necrotic scars on the foliage of its host plant (Glochidion rubrum). When combined with the insect's irregular green and brown coloration, this amplifies its camouflage while it rests on the underside of a leaf. Sabah, Malaysia (Borneo).
