Red-Eyed Leafhopper - Gyponana serpenta

Red-Eyed Leafhopper - Gyponana serpenta
Near Ruraldale, Upshur County, West Virginia, USA
October 6, 2005
Green with blue stripes like Draeculacephala zeae, but the red eyes and details of the anterior dorsal markings make me think this is something else?

Moved from Gyponana.

Probably the common G. serpenta, a woodland insect. This genus may be distinguished from Draeculacephala by the very sharp margin of the head.

Andy, thanks very much for providing the ID for this and the other hopper I posted last night!
