The article describes a five night trip to [he Manu National Park in South Eastern Peru in September of 2000. Phasmids were found at three different sites within the reserve between 500 and 1000 m in primary and secondary (disturbed) rainforest. The most common stick insects encountered were similar in appearance to the genera Ocnophiloidea and Pseudophasmn, with a few other larger species also found. No collections were made and therefore no formal identifications have been possible.
