Buffalo Treehopper Nymph

Stictocephala bisonia

Description:

Nymphs have long, spiny plumes on their dorsal surface. This one was very busy and wouldn't sit still :)

Habitat:

Spotted on fennel in a rural butterfly garden.

Notes:

The taxonomy for buffalo treehoppers is a bit confusing, and I'm not exactly sure what the current consensus is: Stictocephala alta, S. bisonia, S. bizonia, S. bubalus OR Ceresa bubalus, C. alta...???
