About this book

Language: Japanese

Treehoppers belong to the insect groups of the cicadas, but their bodies are much smaller, and part of it changes to form a horn. Central and South American horned treehoppers often have unusually different horn shapes, and others use them to mimic other insects and plants. In plants, young leaves, dead leaves, side buds, etc., in insects, flies, and in others, things similar to insect droppings and husks. This booklet provides a photographic introduction to the wonderful and mysterious treehopper.

Summary in Japanese:
ツノゼミは、セミの仲間ですが、セミと比べると体がとても小さく、それと、体の一部が変化して角状になっています。中南米のツノゼミは、角の形が、特に変わったものが多く、その角を利用して他の昆虫や植物に、擬態といって自分の姿を似せているものがいます。植物では、若葉や枯れ葉、脇芽など、昆虫では、ハエや、変わったものでは虫の糞や抜け殻に似たものまでいます。ゆかいでふしぎなツノゼミたちを紹介します。
