South Texas bug.. - Cephisus variolosus
Weslaco, Hidalgo County, Texas, USA
July 28, 2018
I found this specimen at Estero Llano Grande State Park. Found on a wall right below a flood light around 9-10pm. This image was also posted on iNaturalist, where a curator by the name of Jason, suggested I post this image here. I'm not familiar with this bug at all. I thought it was some kind of leafhopper, but Im probably on the wrong track. Any help would be appreciated. TIA!

WOW
