Description:

Brochosomes are curious protein excretions produced by leafhoppers and spread on the body after molting. They are thought to aid the insect and avoiding sticking to the feeding substrate among other things. Many photographs of brochosomes as well as insects anointing themselves are included, as well as videos.
