Aphid nymph? - Paraulacizes irrorata

Aphid nymph? - Paraulacizes irrorata
Delaware County, Pennsylvania, USA
May 4, 2008
Much less than 1mm from what I recall since I believe this was taken at around 5X lifesize with my MP-E.

Is this an aphid nymphd or a plant bug nymph? Best angle I could get, I don't even know if it is feeding on the plant.

Moved from Treehoppers.

Paraulacizes irrorata
A very young leafhopper with the very "hairy" head of Paraulacizes. Young nymphs look a lot like those of treehoppers; they belong in the same superfamily Membracoidea.


Treehopper nymph.
Pretty certain this is the nymph of a membracid. Cool shot.
