Flatid Planthopper


A brown bark-colored fulgoroid Planthopper of the Family Flatidae, 7 mm in length. It was also covered in a waxy secretion. The dark proboscis for sucking sap is visible from the underside in the last picture. This is the first time I've found a camouflaged brown one. I usually see white or green ones.


Found on a wall at night below lights, semi-rural residential area, San Cristobal de Las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico 2,200 meters.
