These insects are located in Malaysia (southeastern Asia) an areas of forest. Their food consists of oak and guava leaves, and their appearance helps them to blend in with these surroundings. They also sway, like the Spiny Leaf Insect, to appear more as a part of their habitat to disguise themselves to predators.
