Hi Solomon
Does this mean that it is not a servillei? Putting them by their selves, are they unknown at this point?
Thanks Sam

A. servillei
it is servillei (as I understand it), this is just a crude start to separating nymphs from adults. some of the species have separate pages while others don't—I'm hoping to move all servillei nymphs to this page at some point. I'm hesitant to do it since BG2.0 might have a completely different format that renders these sorts of pages obsolete (I hope it does tbh), but as of now adults and nymphs aren't separated based on the checkboxes.

Thanks Solomon, great explana
Thanks Solomon, great explanation. I have trouble keeping track of my keys.

Moved from ID Request.

This comes as a complete surprise. This is one planthopper I don't have.
thanks Ken

You're welcome :)
Looking around some more, it might be A. servillei:

But I'll let the experts make that call.

Thanks Ken
I get you. You guys are great for this old man
