Zanna madagascariensis, the Malagasy lantern bug, is endemic to Madagascar. It is a member of the Zanninae, considered to be a subfamily of the Fulgoridae. The nymphs are sometimes referred to as lantern-flies because of their large lantern like snout, although this does not emit light. The adult bugs are known as sakandry, and are consumed by the rural people of Madagascar.
Zanna madagascariensis has a white waxy dusty coating and a large orange lantern-like head or snout.
