  1. Albert, do you know what species this is? Is the photo good enough for determination? Posted 6 years ago

        1. Hi Thibaud and Ferdy, I have looked up the book, Phasmids of Peninsular Malaysia and Singapore: A Pocket Guide by Dr Francis Seow-Choen, published in 2005. Unfortunately, was not able to find a corresponding match to help with the ID of the species of this Phasmid. The Pocket Guide book does not shows all the Phasmids to be found from Peninsular Malaysia and also the males and females of the known Phasmids in the book.

          The picture shows a male Phasmid.

            1. You are welcome, Thibaud, just unfortunate I couldn't help with the ID.

              As you were in Fraser's Hill, you probably seen a few species of Phasmids among which, two species can be very impressive!

              - Jungle Nymph (Heteropteryx dilatata) and
              - Haaniella mulleri
