Artist's Description

A Toxic Milkweed Grasshopper nymph in our garden at Jansenville in the Eastern Cape of South Africa.
’n Stinksprinkaan-nimf in ons tuin op Jansenville.

Phymateus leprosus is one of the Toxic Milkweed Grasshoppers or Gaudy Grasshoppers in the family Pyrgomorphidae. These locusts feed on highly toxic plants and usually congregate in large numbers on trees and shrubs, arranged in such a way as to resemble foliage.
Phymateus leprosus occurs in the wild bush and scrubland of the coastal belt of South Africa and at times invades farm lands, damaging citrus trees, pumpkins and other crops.
Both hoppers and adults emit an offensive smell when caught and are not eaten by birds. This offensive smell produced has earned it the Afrikaans name of ‘stink-sprinkaan’, which means Smelly Grasshopper.
