Thanks David
Moved to O. pelidna from your email comment on the identification.

Orphulella speciosa
The shape of the fastigum, the only once cut edges to the top of the pronotum, and short wings point to this species.

Probably Orphulella sp.
Without a lateral angle, pretty hard to tell, but I suspect this is a species of Orphulella, and creating a guide page for that genus if none already exists.
