White Moth Bug (Flatid Planthopper - Nymphal form)

Lawana imitata, Flatidae


Do not confuse the common name with the species. It is not a moth at all, but rather the nymphal form of a Flatid plant hopper.

That is very interesting, Andrew, I didn't know it. You could put that piece of info in the notes section, it would make clear the name is not wrong. Thank you.

I know asergio, but that is the common name for the species.

Andrew, flatidaes are leafhoppers, not moths.
