2-3mm bug that makes big hops - Phylloscelis atra

2-3mm bug that makes big hops - Phylloscelis atra
Hochatown , McCurtain County, Oklahoma, USA
October 20, 2016
Size: I think 2-3 mm
Found it along almost a one mile dirt road one day, went back the next day to take better pictures, amazingly found another, both were sitting on the ground and both jumped a foot or more with one hop as I approached, then they hunkered down to hide.
