Default World's longest insect is twice the length of your worst nightmare

World's longest insect is twice the length of your worst nightmare

62.4-centimeter-long insect was originally mistaken for part of a tree


Scientists in China report that they've found the world's longest insect a new species of stick insect of the genus Phryganistria that measures over half a meter. According to state media outlet Xinhua, the specimen was discovered during a field trip in the Guangxi Zhuang region in 2014, but has now been declared the world's longest. The 62.4-centimeter-long creature beats the previous record holder, another stick insect discovered in 2008 (and named Phobaeticus chani or Chan's megastick) by nearly six centimeters.

Imagine waking up in the middle of the night to find that crawling on you?
