Trying to identify planthopper - Acanalonia conica

Trying to identify planthopper - Acanalonia conica
Orange County, North Carolina, USA
Size: Adult 8mm, nymph 3mm
I'm trying to pin down this species of planthopper currently visiting a tree in my yard. Note the difference between daylight (tan) and nighttime (red) eye coloration. The ants were regularly "milking" these. Thanks for your input!

Adults and nymph are in the genus Acanalonia
Dr Hamilton will be able to say whether they are the same species or not.

 
Acanalonia conica
The adults are certainly this species - not so sure about the nymph, which is more probably the common A. bivittata. Several photos on BugGuide of nymphs have green wing pads, suggesting A. conica; but another photo (#64067) shows adults oc A. conica associating with several brown nymphs.

reared from that lilac nymph?
if not, the two photos should be unlinked
