This 5 mm long nymph was a purple and grey colour with white mottling on the head and thorax. Antennae (barely visible in photo) were long and thin - almost half the body length. Wing buds visible. The abdomen had short stiff setae.
Spotted on a Goodenia plant in a national park.
This was the only shot I could get before the nymph ran on to the underside of the leaf and down into the undergrowth.
My thanks to Ken Walker and Tony D for their comments and for identifying this as a leafhopper nymph.
