Leafhopper (posted separately) with green-blue abdominal "thing"
Modoc NF, Red Tail Rim Trail, north trailhead, Modoc County, California, USA

Size: ca 2-3 mm
This leafhopper, beat from a juniper tree and collected, had a prominent blue-green vermiform structure within the abdomen. I wondered about a pipunculid larva and collected it alive, but it quickly died and the "thing" was found sticking out of the antero-dorsal abdomen. Is this a parasitoid larva, or just greenish intestinal contents?? Help!

But...
This is for the potential parasitoid and not the leafhopper...it is a duplicate for that reason...

 
Ohhhhh
My mistake!
