Typhlocybinae - Empoasca? With possible parasitic larva?

Typhlocybinae - Empoasca? With possible parasitic larva?
Modoc NF, Red Tail Rim Trail, north trailhead, Modoc County, California, USA

Beat from a juniper tree and collected alive in case there was a parasite to rear. Unfortunately the hopper died quickly and I found the elongated green structure protruding from the base of the dorsal abdomen. I wonder about a pipunculid larva, but I'm not sure - could it be just green intestinal contents? Help!

Wow, very interesting! I have no idea what that blue thing is, your guess is as good as mine.

 
Thanks Kyle!
