It’s a shame I found this attractive little leafhopper on such an ugly leaf.
Some leafhoppers (family Cicadellidae) spread their wings in the manner shown above, perhaps as part of some mating ritual.
Here’s a somewhat unusual leafhopper. I don’t recall ever seeing one with an upturned snout.
In an earlier post I remarked how I initially mistook a colorful micromoth for a leafhopper, and that I later saw a similarly marked leafhopper. This is the leafhopper I had in mind, although now I can’t really say they look all that alike.
I did see quite a few of this variety of leafhopper though.
