Spittlebug - Prosapia ignipecta

Spittlebug - Prosapia ignipecta
Amherst, Massachusetts, USA
July 19, 2004
Shot in my backyard. This was a largish bug and looks similar to the Two-Lined Spittlebug (without the stripes).

Moved
Moved from Prosapia.

is probably Prosapia ignipectus
but you would have to see the underside to tell whether the coxae are contrastingly orange-red

I agree
I am no expert, but I am quite sure that there is a great deal of individual variation in color among the froghoppers.
