Hello to all kind people. Thanks for your comments. :)


It is a Cercopidae nymph. It is not parasitized by fungi. I'm still researching it. As do the larvae of lacewings, this insect carries a white mass on the back, to be disguised as egg mass. I have not figured out if the body it produces this mass, which is a foam that solidifies, or if he steals mass of eggs of other insects.
