9950 Order Hemiptera. ***Explanation***

This is an insect that is collected by the Kam people for food. It is most often found on low growing oak. They are collected in jars and fried in a small amount of oil. A very powerful sweet acrid smell emanates from these insects, which would seem to contradict their edibility but after a sampling by a team member it was reported that they are flavorful, crunchy and surprisingly good and who am I to question a doctor.
