I thought this was a moth at first when I was photographing it, but now I'm not really sure what the heck it is at all!

may I use this image on my NC hopper site?

Re: Image
Yes, of course. I can provide the original image to you if that would be helpful as well. I think the resolution will be about the same, but the quality might be better.

Thank you very much, yeah just email the original if you would like

Derbidae: Otiocerus wolfei
It looks like our NH specimens identified by Andy Hamilton. Very nice.

Otiocerus amyotii
It looks like O. wolfei, but lacks a black line on the head in front of the eyes.

from ID Request to new species page

Reminds me of the Fulgoroid Planthoppers found here. Images on pages 4-7 especially.

Fabulous image of one of the Derbidae!
