Nymph leafhopper - Draeculacephala

Nymph leafhopper - Draeculacephala
Parc national du Mont-Saint-Bruno, Montérégie County, Quebec, Canada
September 30, 2006
I would like to know, if possible, what this leafhopper nymph is. There was many of them on long grasses, where I saw Sorhoanus pascuellus adults as well. And they both have black spots near the tip of the head.
But ..... this nymph resembles Provancherana tripunctata BugGuide nymph picture: .
I have never seen adults P.tripunctata close to my nymph.

Moved from Sharpshooters.


Probably the common grass-feeding D. zeae.

The possible Provancherana nymph mentioned is not definitely identified. It appears to be more flattened than this specimen. Possibly it is just another species of Draeculacephala.
