Thank you Karen and Luis. Actually this is a very interesting spotting. I always find these treehoppers gathered in large herds, tended by ants, which provide them security. The ants seem to be very capable of doing their bouncer job, but I often see a jumping spider close to the herd. If a treehopper leaves the group, it will have a swift and nasty end...
