Saw this weird looking bug at Fraser Hill at the Waterfall trail on 3 May 2009.
Only managed to have one shot after my slow setup of tripod etc, and it flew/jump away, i think due to a big crowd passing by. So pardon me for the blurred image.
It’s head looks like a cricket, with a missing leg, and it’s body has turqoise coloued rings around it.
WIngs are a bit like those of a damsel/dragonfly. Have not seen it before.
According to Wei Luen, he has seen a similar one, at FH as well.
ID is appreciated.

I saw one that’s just on the other side of the stream below the waterfall. I wanted to bring it back to the other side to shoot but it flew away.May 13, 2009 at 4:04 pm #288975richardlbongMember
This is not uncommon in the hill region in Malaysia. Have seen and taken shots of this specie at Bukit Tinggi inside the Botanic Gardens.
