clear-winged Planthopper - Cixius misellus

clear-winged Planthopper - Cixius misellus
Miramichi, New Brunswick, Canada
September 2, 2004
Haven't seen anything like this before or since, and not sure where it might fit but the clear wings with dotted lines seem similar to Cixiidae here and here. Length about 5-6 mm. It's sitting on a concrete post, which I'm afraid doesn't help!

This is probably a cixiid. No obvious spur indicating Delphacidae, wings don't overlap as in Achilidae...
