Thorn Mimic Treehopper (Enchenopa?) - Enchenopa
Tulsa / Red Bud Valley Nature Preserve, Tulsa County, Oklahoma, USA
May 29, 2008
Size: ~6mm?
First time I have seen one of these thorn mimic treehoppers. Not sure of the species, but I'm pretty sure it's in the Enchenopa genus. Probably around 7mm in size.

The profile kind of looks like a stylized bird.


i see these things all the time but never knew what they were

male Enchenopa
Males have a shorter "horn" than females.

What plant was it on?
