A new Leaf Insect of the genus Nanophyllium

A new species of the Leaf Insect genus Nanophyllium Redtenbacher, 1906 has just been described in the well-known journal "Zootaxa". Nanophyllium stellae n. sp. from the Cyclop Mountains, Jayapura, West Irian (New Guinea) is only known from a single male. With a body length of 39.9 mm this new species is the largest known representative of the genus and is well characterized by the strongly broadened and rounded pro- meso- and metafemora, the typical shape of the abdomen as well as the distinctive yellow longitudinal stripe on the head and thorax. The holotype is deposited in the San Diego Natural History Museum, CA, USA.
