Christiane I think this is a Pink Planthopper rather than a Mango Planthopper. http://www.brisbaneinsects.com/brisbane_...

Hello, I started a mission that focuses on the hoppers. I'm hoping it will global rather than just the 300 mile radius of where I'm at. Regardless, I'd really appreciate you adding your hopper spotting(s). http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/8096... Thank you!
