Leafhopper with a false eye - Clastoptera proteus
Oak Ridge, Anderson County, Tennessee, USA
June 12, 2008
This little leafhopper was on a shrub in a field. I had to look closely to see which end was which because the false eye was so convincing! The true eye is well camouflaged in the black stripe on the head. I looked for this insect on the leafhopper section of Bugguide, but I didn't see it. Can anyone tell me what kind it is? Thanks!
