nymph - Scaphytopius

nymph - Scaphytopius
Cross Plains, Dane County, Wisconsin, USA
August 5, 2008
Size: 4mm or less
Possibly a nymph of some kind of plant- or leafhopper.

Moved from Scaphytopius.

Something similar in Scaphytopius
See , but Scaphoideus looks similar to us too! :(

I'll go with Scaphytopius sin
I'll go with Scaphytopius since mine looks really similar to the nymph already posted there. Thanks!

Yes, you will notice that all the abdominal segments have long, pale spines on them, not just the apical segments (as in Scaphoideus).
