This tiny Cicadellidae (Leafhoppers) nymph was found on willow. There are several similar species and identification can be difficult, especially at this early stage. With some help I manged to get it down to Kybos sp.

  1. Immature hoppers are tough. I go to BugGuide here in the U.S. and often get the advice to do a genital dissection. Nope. 🙂 Well done noticing this tiny and well camouflaged little one.

    1. This is why I love macro photography so much, Linda. Normally we wouldn’t be able to see these fine details with the naked eye, so I am always excited to look and see what may pop up next 🙂
