Tiny hopper - Clastoptera proteus

Tiny hopper - Clastoptera proteus
Thornhill, Ontario, Canada
July 11, 2007
Size: ~3mm
This is a different specimen of the same species found in a different location a few days earlier. This image shows the insect from behind. It was very hard to tell just by looking at it which was the front and which was the back until looking at the images at home. There appear to be false eyes on the wings. Also note the much bolder yellow stripes on the back. Pehaps differentiating male from female?
