|Membracid treehopper (Tribe Stegaspidini) (source: EOL)|
So, I only found out recently that there is a documentary about a team of scientists collecting Membracidae in the Amazon. Membracidae are a family of treehoppers containing some prettty weird looking animals. They're definitely among the most spectacular insects around.
The documentary is callled 'Aliens of the Amazon' and was originally broadcast on Science Channel in 2010 (I watched it dubbed in French on ARTE).
I managed to find the first two parts on Youtube, but the last part is missing and sadly I can't find it anywhere. If anyone knows where I could, feel free to let me know. Anyway, It's definitely worth checking out.
