Hi Maria, Coincidentally, I recently blogged about spotting this very dragon headed bug...you can check it out at: http://naturalsciencesresearch.wordpress...
The specific post is called "on Planthoppers..or...Some of the Coolest Bugs EVER", but I have other posts on that blog that you might be interested in (about treehoppers, spittlebugs, and other research topics).

Cheers!
