Caught in spiderweb

Caught in spiderweb
Hamilton, Ontario, Canada
October 10, 2017

I am fairly confident
that this is some sort of larva (beetle?), and the white stuff is just some plant debris. Others can help you further, though I highly doubt it is a wooly aphid or planthopper. There are clear anatomical differences; the hopper is not wormlike and has a large head.

ID of this Bug...
Buddy! Buddy!! I think I found it…
See what you think!!
Spiny flower mantis nymph

That one... native to Africa. :)

ID Bug..
Ok, other than color Orange…

ID Bug..
:'- (
Poor little thing!
Its a Planthopper/Leafhopper Nymph. .
Specifically… Torpedo Bug (Siphanta acuta)

Hmm... I'm not convinced it's a hopper nymph.
It certainly isn't a Torpedo Bug--not in Ontario. The only place you'd encounter them within BG's coverage area would be California.

I see that! Thanks! Good eye!
