Delphacid Planthopper - Sogatella kolophon

But what kind? I looked through the section here on BG, but found none that matched this one.

Moved from Sogatella.

Sogatella kolophon
This one occurs all the way up the Atlantic coast to N.S.

Have you seen...
Genus Sogatella yet?

Thank you!
Somehow I missed that section! Looks like it could be Sogatella molina, based on the description of shorter head and brown wing margin. Do you think?

Please see comment...
from Dr. Andy Hamilton on 25 October on this image:

S. molina had been thought to be limited to Florida before the above thumbed picture from New Jersey... I see what you are thinking is the 'brown wing margin' in your image but with the angle of the image, I could not say that it matches the 'brown wing margin' in the above thumbed image. But you actually saw the hopper and would know better than I.

I wasn't too sure about that myself,
but thought the head on mine definitely looked like that of the one found in NJ vs. the other one with the longer head.
