Leaf hopper? - Cuerna costalis

Leaf hopper? - Cuerna costalis
Sebring, Highlands County, Florida, USA
May 5, 2010
Size: 5-7mm roughly
I confess I get plant hoppers, leaf hoppers, and tree hoppers all confused. I think this is a leaf hopper? At least, I found him on a leaf but not on a tree. Located in an area of low ground cover near scrub oaks and palmettos.

Moved from Cuerna.

Moved from Free-living Hemipterans.

Yurika might very well be correct; however, according to the Guide there are 27 species in NA, of which only 7 are represented here. Who's to say that this isn't one of the "missing" species?

Yes, a leafhopper :)
Looks like Cuerna costalis...
