green nymph - Ormenoides venusta

green nymph - Ormenoides venusta
Hawkeye Wildlife Area, Johnson County, Iowa, USA
July 1, 2012
Size: 4-5 mm
Found in the company of at least three adult hoppers...Two-horned treehopper, Citrus Flatid planthopper, and Acanalonia conica.


I'd bet on the flatid
. . . because your nymph looks much like the green phases of the fourth and fifth instars of Siphanta acuta, though its proportions are different and I don't see the black markings.

Ormenoides venusta? I don't see orange spots on your nymph though...

Ormenoides venusta
the 4 black spots on the tail are characteristic
