This is not for jumping organisms! This mission is focusing on the Auchenorrhyncha suborder (Free-living Hemipterans). This includes the superfamilies Cicadoidea (Cicadas, Leafhoppers, Froghoppers and Treehoppers) and Fulgoroidea (Planthoppers). This means no grasshoppers, crickets, katydids, frogs, spiders, etc. They are found all around the world and many are considered pests as they feed on plants and are vectors for plant diseases. I find them fascinating in their diversity and ability to mimic their surroundings. For more information on the Auchenorrhyncha suborder, visit
