I want to establish a link here with adults you found.
This was on the same tree two months later:

 
Yes
Very likely the same population.

Moved
Moved from Danepteryx.

Moved
Moved from nymphs.

Moved
Moved from Issid Planthoppers.

Issid nymph
Yes, this is the last instar before the adult - you can see the wings are almost fully developed.

It will be most important for you to watch for adults and contact me as soon as you find them, because there are no records of this family from redwoods.

Uh-oh!
It may not be possible. We don't visit that park often. If it happens that I find an adult there, should I have a little bottle with me and try to capture it?
