Flatid Planthopper - Flatormenis proxima

Flatid Planthopper - Flatormenis proxima
Amherst, Massachusetts, USA
August 29, 2004
Photo taken in my backyard. These waxy, white, planthoppers are hard to get a good shot of as I was worried the flash would burn out all the details. This northeastern species seems to have subtle differences to the one I shot in South Florida this summer:

Flatidae
Anormenis septentrionalis
