The world’s longest insect was a stick insect that measured 56.7 cm, found in Borneo. Before that discovery (in 2008), at a staggering 35 centimeters (14 inches) the Scolopendra Gigantea – more commonly known as the Giant Centipede – were widely considered to be the biggest insects in the world. However, the largest confirmed weight of an adult insect is 71 grams for a giant weta (a sort of cricket found in New Zealand).
The largest insect of the world is the now extinct Protodonata. The insects’ name means “early dragonfly.” The Protodonata is figured to live 300 million years ago, which puts the insect’s lifetime before the Mesozoic era of dinosaurs.
