I don't know if a positive ID can be made from this "lousy" photograph...I have been trying all spring to get a decent photograph of these little guys. I can't capture it either on camera or physically to get a clear macro. This one was under my cherry tree, and they really like my Laurel hedge (Prunus sp.)...If an id can't be made or if someone wants me to, I'll happily frass this image.

Zygina flammigera
The zigzag red stripe is highly characteristic of this European species that has been introduced into western North America. Watch for the nymphs on trees - they have enormously long, fine antennae, longer than the whole body. We need a good photo of that!
