The Cladocora or Mediterranean stony coral Staghorn is a globular medium calcareous skeleton to over 50 cm in diameter. However, colony shape depends on the depth, the light and the current. The color is brown. Polyps can retract completely into their tubular skeletons, called skips, 4-5 mm wide. It is active day and night and are exposed tentacles to capture prey, which consist of plankton.

This looks like different species (and even families?) The nymphs especially the last pic looks like Cicadellidae to me not like Cercopoidiae. I also don't know of spittlebugs producing 'honey-dew' for ants either. I think you have a mix of animals on the tree Ernst.
For the developers at New York start-up Networked Organisms, smartphones are the butterfly nets of the 21st Century. Their tool, Project Noah, lets people upload photos of plants and wildlife around them, creating a map of the natural world and contributing to scientific research in the process.
Bespectacled scientists of yore would carry around hefty field guides, made up of hundreds of pages of text and photos. But these days, smartphone owners have a lighter option: an app called Project Noah, which aims to help people identify plants and animals as well as collect data from "citizen scientists" about where certain species are located.
Project Noah enables us to be part of a more focused online community where we can learn more about wildlife around us and contribute to scientific research. It pulls participants into deeper, more meaningful engagement by enabling people to go on “missions” to collectively map changes based on sightings.
A modern invention that may also hold the key to saving species in the future. Project Noah is a global study that encourages nature lovers to document the wildlife they encounter, using a purpose built phone app and web community. In addition to the virtual "collection" of species, Project Noah encourages citizen science by linking up with existing surveys including the International Spider Survey and the Global Coral Reef Monitoring Network.
