Fungus infested planthopper with tiny primative hexapod

Discovered the tiny...dipluran?...in this photo later on. I'd collected the planthopper, so I was able to put the mystery insect under the scope and get a closeup.

Frass
This one is probably frassable.

 
It's referenced in
the Arthropod Pathogenic Fungus article... and it's the only Membracid depicted there. Maybe we should keep it in the Guide so it doesn't disappear from the article in 30 days. Just a thought, for what it's worth.

 
Good point.
I've un-frassed it, and disassociated it from the springtail. I'm fairly certain that it is actually a flatid planthopper (possibly Metcalfa), so I put it with that family.

The little one
looks like an Elongate-bodied Springtail to me.
