I found this beautiful Eurybrachyidae planthopper, laying eggs on a tree trunk. I spent about 2 hours observing, photographing and taking movie clips of her and the egg laying process :)
IDed as Chalia pulchra (GRAY, 1832). Family: Eurybrachyidae. ID credit: Jerome Constant.
The tree was Endorspermum malaccense.
Location: Selangor, Malaysia.

At one point, an assassin bug nymph came quite close to her, but retreated. Later, an ant came. You see only the ant here but not the assassin bug.
The assassin bug I mentioned previously.
I roughly counted and there were about 160 eggs.
