DistributionThe Cyphonia Clavata lives mainly in the rainforests of South America, parts of Mexico and Costa Rica.
DefenseThe plan is that any predator looking down will only see what looks like an ant. The rest of the treehopper’s body will blend in with the foliage. What seems, at first, strange is that the body of the ant is positioned backwards on that of the treehopper. Take a look at the abdomen of the ant and you will see the tiny green eyes of the treehopper. Why is this? It is because when it is in defensive mode an ant will move backwards. In this way, the ant-mimicking treehopper (which can be found in in Middle and South America) has, in fact, got this right too.
