Treehopper with a Mullet - Micrutalis

Treehopper with a Mullet - Micrutalis
Desoto, Dallas County, Texas, USA
September 8, 2009
Size: 3mm
Something in Micrutalis? I have had these as nymphs on my Japanese Eggplant since July but have not noticed the adults until now (although, to be honest, I wasn't really looking). Note that the dark area is differently shaped on the two individuals. What is interesting is that both nymphs and adults are presently on Nightshade plants (Solanum dimidiatum)in a nearby field. I notice that one of the images in the Guide for Micrutalis parva was also photographed on Nightshade.

LOL!
It really does look like a bad haircut!

Best to post
these on the treehopper page where Andy can find them easily. And it sure looks like you are on the right track for your ID.
