Hopper nymph on bitternut hickory - Acanalonia bivittata

Hopper nymph on bitternut hickory - Acanalonia bivittata
West Meade, Nashville, Davidson County, Tennessee, USA
July 8, 2008
I estimate the length at 2 mm based on how much of the frame it fills up in the original photo.


What's the significance
of this category? Looks like everything is either an adult or a brown nymph.

Can't remember anymore
think it was just to get the many nymph images pulled out from the adult images so you could focus on one or the other, without looking through the adults for the immatures or looking through the immatures for the adults.

That makes sense
I wish there was an option of selecting only the adults or immatures for every kind of bug, instead of just Lepidoptera. I'm going to remove the word "brown" from the title, to avoid future confusion.

Yes, Beatriz has brought that up
a number of times. We can only hope that BugGuide 2.0 allows for that to happen. It will mean going through all the images to make sure adult vs immature is checked, but that's a one time big secretarial job and then pretty easy to keep up.

nymphs can be viewed on the info page here

Seems like A. bivittata, but I'm not sure how I would rule out A. pumila.

Acanalonia bivittata
A. pumila is much smaller, paler, and found only in the Gulf states.
