Notice the parabolic shape dish between the insects eye and the mushroom shaped structure. It is best observed in the second picture under the eye on the viewer's right hand side.

Given the structure I'd guess that all this is for sound reception... any ideas? A truly beautiful insect. These pictures are reduced in size but are raw of the camera no post processing at all. I took the picture on the extreme wester border of Guyana South America. Close to an Indian village called Paruima
