    The fulgorid insect Fulgora laternaria (often misspelled "lanternaria"), is a Central and South American planthopper known by a large variety of common names including lantern fly, peanut bug, peanut-headed lanternfly, alligator bug, machaca, chicharra-machacuy, cocoposa (in Spain) and jequitiranaboia (the latter terms used in the Amazon region and elsewhere in Brazil) and Bolivia. It is as long as 3 inches, has a protuberance at its head that resembles that of a lizard or a serpent, and which was originally - and falsely - believed to be luminescent.In several countries, such as Ecuador, Colombia and Venezuela, there exists the myth that if somebody is bitten by the machaca, he or she must have sex within 24 hours to prevent an otherwise incurable death. The popular belief in Bolivia (Santa Cruz de la Sierra) is that it is a dangerous insect dependant on its wing colours but the insect is actually harmless to people.
