Horned treehopper

Sextius virescens


These horned leaf-hoppers are prolific on black acacia where they are attended by ants. The ants feed on honeydew, a sugary secretion provided by the ants who provide protection from predators such as wasps. There are also large numbers of larvae of the imperial blue butterfly.


Suburban nature reserve.
