Title:
Phyllium Bioculatum

Species or element:
Phyllium Bioculatum

Description:
This is an illustration of Walking Leaf (Phyllium Bioculatum), known for its striking leaflike appearance, probably the most remarkably camouflaged leaf mimics in the entire animal kingdom.
One of the main reasons I chose this animal, besides its unusual ability to camouflage a part of a plant, was definitely the lack of scientific illustrations dedicated to this specific specie. As I was searching through the internet, I found only very few illustrations of Phylliidae , mostly in poor quality or resolution and not very detailed.
