Leafhopper - Lepyronia quadrangularis

Leafhopper - Lepyronia quadrangularis

I would suggest this is a leafhopper or planthopper but not sufficiently informed to make a judgement.

My guess is a spittlebug (Cercopidae) perhaps in the Lepyronia genus. See this page in the Guide:
And here's a link to Lepyronia species at the Cedar Creek site
but unfortunately the site has been down since yesterday afternoon.

Thanks Robin. I think you are right on. In further searching of the Pbase references cited, I believe this is the diamondbacked spittlebug, Lepyronia quadrangularis.
