What is this strange creature?

Observations: It was shot near Fraser's Hill. About the size of a 10 cents coin, it didn't appear to have any feelers, but had the snout of a pig. :ko: :pdr: :ko:
Will show you a shot from the top later.

Now the shot from the top.
The creature has incorporated some bits from dead leaves to its posterior. When it retracts its legs, it looks like a dirty lump of dirt, a perfect camouflage. Now, what is this? :ko: :pdr: :ko:

Laurence,
I have no idea what is that alien creature :pdr:

Lena,
I think that is a tree/leaf hopper.

Thanks Laurence. This morning I found it on my car, and had to shoo it off before I left for work... :giggle:
