found on 23-November-2019 on Quercus robur / oak tree near Bingen, Rhineland, Germany.
There were at least three of them on the oaks, perfectly camouflaged, when sitting.
Can it be further identified?
Many thanks and regards,
Stella M attached the following image:

If you experienced a very sluggish site recently, it may have been because someone tried to upload a maliciuous script by force. It appears to have failed. The visitor was blocked further access.
