Treehopper nymph - Tylocentrus reticulatus

Treehopper nymph - Tylocentrus reticulatus
San Pedro River Valley, SE of San Manuel, Pinal County, Arizona, USA
May 21, 2012
Size: approx 3 mm
Found in the fold between tiny branches of a Velvet Mesquite Tree (Prosopsis velutina) (where they are very well camouflaged). I had thought this was a Platycentrus nymph, but now looking at the horns, I think it might be Tylocentrus quadricornis, however the horns on the photos here at BG appear to have on set pointed forwards and the other backwards. I'm sorry about the poor quality of these photos - these guys are tiny. Thank you for your help, as always.

Tylocentrus reticulatus
Fewer pronotal processes than in T. quadricornis. You also found an adult there, too.
