Common Name: Lanternfly

Origin: Vietnam, Hong Kong, Loas, Thailand

Members of this geus are sometimes called lanternflies. Despite their name, lanternflies do not emit light. Like all lanternflies, P. cancelaria feeds on plant sap (from longan and lychee trees, among others). Its long, slender proboscis is used to pierce tree bark to reach the sap. They are often sought out by collectors.
