I returned to this location Nov 29, a week after this photo was taken. The egg mass looks the same. I had a good look around, but did not find any adult treehopper nearby.

So egg masses for different species look different - that is interesting to know. I hope I may be able to get back to this spot tomorrow or the next day. I will check on the eggs and look for an adult.

Anne Marie, please check these links: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/949... and http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/145.... The first one looks very much like yours.

Thanks Sergio. I did not see a treehopper (there were a good many blue, metallic leaf beetles on the same plant). I hope I'll get a chance to go have another look ...

Anne Marie, these are treehopper eggs. You'll probably find an adult nearby.
