Is that it’s tongue?
And is that an antena and if so where is the second one?
Yep, I’m full of questions this morning, never seen one of these before.

Elaine, that is called a proboscis. It’s a feeding organ, like a built in straw. When it is not in use, it is curled up.
That is the antenna and the other one is not in focus and it is also foreshortened in the image and that makes it hard to see. The one that you can barely see is in front of the eye to the left.
