This is one of our local treehoppers. it seems to quite common through the rainy season. However, I have only located them on ornamental Ixora's. They measure just about 4mm long. The egg cases are about the same and these nymphs don't measure any more to 1.5 to 2mm long

Habitat:

Tropical dry forest in NW Costa Rica just past the halfway mark of the rainy season.
