Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

Moved from Scaphoideus.

The "tail spots" and bristles are characteristic of this genus. This is a young nymph. Please watch for later instars and adults, and see if you can find out its host plant (this one seems to have jumped off onto a grass, which is not its food plant).
