On the biodiversity observed

Placement on a phylogeny
I chose to describe Brochymena arborea on the phylogeny. It is found under insects, situated with many
stinkbug species. It is a "true bug" and associated with tree bugs and aphids. Many in it's local branch
express colorings similar to the bark of a tree.
A unique adaptation
The adaptation I had chosen was the camouflage of Brochymena arborea. Owing to their common
habitat being trees, this camouflage protects them from predators and allows them to ambush and soft
A common adaptation
One observed was multiple limbs. Evolutionarily, the presence of this allows for multiple
tasks to be completed simultaneously. The first arthropods seen with multiple legs were present around
540 million years ago.
