I think Dr. Hamilton has remarked on other images about black spots being unusual on Gyponinae nymphs.

Gyponinae nymph? - Xerophloea viridis lateral - Xerophloea viridis

Moved from Xerophloea to species level based on similarity to found in the same street block.

Moved from Leafhoppers.



Just found this image of a nymph w/ similar spots

Thanks, John
That looks very likely. Not sure why I thought this one was Gyponinae.

Similar shape
I found my first Xerophloea recently and assumed it was Gyponinae when I saw it in my net but on closer observation the heavily punctate dorsum stood out.
