Moved from Corythucha.

Corythucha cydoniae?
I can't see the height and shape of the hood well enough to decide if this is Corythucha cydoniae or C. cerasi. I'm inclined to think it's cydoniae because of the geographic distribution and because C. cydoniae has many host plants recorded in the rose family, though not cherry. On the other hand, C. cerasi has been recorded on cherry but has only been found in Washington and Indiana. The only way I could be sure of the species is by actually seeing the specimen. Send me a specimen if you find it again.

Corythucha cydoniae?
I do have a hawthorn tree next to the cherry that I found this lace bug on. Perhaps it was just resting on the cherry?

I know the genus is safe, but I wouldn't want to go to species without Laura Miler's opinion.

Corythucha pallipes, i think

Found alone, or with a colony?
Expert will want to know. Nice shots, as usual.

I swept through a small cherry tree, and came up with 4 of these Tingids. Thanks for the nice words.

You're welcome.
Sounds like a family reunion at the very least. LOL.
