The Brazilian treehopper (B. globulare) is among the weirdest-looking insects I’ve ever seen. It looks like some sort of helicopter insect from an alien planet.
The first thing you may notice about the treehopper is the odd antenna-like round appendages on its head. They look like eyes, but they are simply ornamental and without a real function. Although it’s possible that the globe-like appendages are there to deter predators.
Other than the freaky headtopper, the treehopper is a fairly normal bug. This insect thrives on leading a solitary life in treetops, feeding on the undersides of leaves.
Here are a couple more photos of the wacky treehopper.
