I saw a similar one in the same general area, but had no idea what it was till I got help.

Hi Geoffrey. This is a Fulgoridae bug and the white structures are made of wax.
You can see a similar one here.

Very cool! I think this is the same as my spotting. Sorry I don't have a reference link. I got my ID from a book about Guyana.
