I suspect this is the same individual I posted as a nymph two weeks ago (thumbnail below). Still hanging out on my Rose-of-Sharon (Hybiscus syriacus). What's the lifespan of one of these - does anyone know?

I'm sure those things are antennae, but they strike me as very like long Chinese whiskers, which fits the name of this guy.
