Moved from Moths and caterpillars covered by fungus. Yes, Yurika, we like that much better, though we don't know how to confirm it is actually that species :(

It might help to know...
...that this species was abundant in exactly the same spot in late May. They disappeared in early June. I just posted images from that May brood here:

Thanks Yurika for the steer.

How about this?

It may be helpful... quote Matt Edmonds' comment for that image here:

These hoppers can be decimated by fungus in a wet year and take a couple years for their numbers to return.

Moved from ID Request.

Looks like a moth
attacked by a fungus
