Small brown and white mottled insect (leaf hopper?) that looks like a little patch of lichen peeling off a tree. It's body angles up when standing.


Apparently likes to chill on lunch boxes. Could be Glassy-winged Sharpshooter

Definitely a sharpshooter/leafhopper, Cicadellidae, Cicadellinae. Looks close to this one, but I am not 100% sure about the range of this one and the correct ID. Take it as a hint!
