The insect’s translucent or partially transparent wings were so delicate. Each translucent or nearly clear wing was dotted with blue and edged in green, whereas the rest of the insect’s body was made of a material that allowed no light to pass through at all. At night, light that shone from the insect’s body glowed right through these translucent or almost see-through wings.
