Treehopper, Microcentrus - Microcentrus perditus

Treehopper, Microcentrus - Microcentrus perditus
Cincinnati, Hamilton County, Ohio, USA
September 12, 2020
Size: 7mm
Intercepted as it was brought into a nest burrow by a Hoplisoides species wasp.
May be a Microcentrus species. However, the head shape seems to be different from either caryae or perditus. Plus, it has the interesting dorsal appendage.

Moved from Treehoppers.

 
Buckle up :)
V, I intercepted about ~120 individual treehoppers over the past few months...

 
i meant specifically Microcentrus, not t-hoppers in general
some membracids show up in great numbers at my porch lights, i have hundreds pinned but still unidentified... rough (but conservative) estimate, 30 spp. in a dozen genera
but Microcentrus, i only have 4-5 specimens so far

 
Ah, ok. I do have a few more
Ah, ok. I do have a few more Microcentrus somewhere in the middle of my temporal sequence. They are pretty good for caryae and perditus. Unfortunately I missed 3 to 4 Microcentrus individuals when the wasps waded through the entrance dirt before I could snag the hopper.
