Excellent to have an image of the nymph for this species -- and, as always, a fantastic photo Scott! Thanks to Dr. Hamilton for the ID.

Pelitropis rotulata
A young nymph, recognizable by the bright red tail lights!

This is the second time you have found this species. Please check for host plants next time.

 
Thanks!
This was a very tiny, skittish nymph. I was only able to get this one lucky shot before it hopped away. I would love to find an adult!
