Fulgoroid nymph? - Acanalonia bivittata

Fulgoroid nymph? - Acanalonia bivittata
Springfield, Fairfax County, Virginia, USA
June 23, 2005
Size: 3-4mm
I'm guessing that this is some type of fulgoroid nymph, though I'm hesitant to say with certainty.

I just found one of these lit
I just found one of these little guys in my apartment in Newburyport Massachusetts - though the coloration was a bit different, he had some green and grey in him and red eyes. Very interesting bug, had to find out what it was. The tuft of cotton like material is very unique. They seem pretty friendly, I let him crawl all around my hand.

Put him on a plant
or bring in some cut weeds in a vase and he'll be happy as a clam! Then you can watch him grow and take some pictures to post here.


Acanalonia bivittata
This is a common species on bittersweet.

See various Issid nymphs already on file.

Great shot!
Looks similar to a nymph I shot...
