NOTE: this side view w/ something like a tail?
And curl like a dead leaf. Inch and a half long maybe.
2 inches?

There are several “dead leaf” insects in the books & online, even butterflies & moths, but I could not find one like this guy! Am I discovering new species?  🙂  Truly a land of discovery here!

As usual, I just went to bed without worrying about him and he was gone the next morning! Either a meal for one of my geckos or left the house, hid somewhere else in the house or died like many insects do every night.
