Looks for me like Cicadellidae, but not automatically Cicadellinae. No IDea what it is.

@Tukup: I perused through this list, the most compreensive I know: https://naturalhistory.museumwales.ac.uk... , but I couldn't find it. Maibe it is not Cicadellidae? I am looking at other sources.

Glad to hear that as everything else looked leaf hopper-ish. I'm seeing some that are close, but not exact markings. Thanks Ingrid.

I was thinking leaf hopper, but the ones I'm familiar with have obvious, usually pointed noses. this one appears to have no nose at all. The eyes are right at the front of the face.

Great shot Sergio. And you are right. They are normally very active. Thanks for sharing. Any ideas on an ID?
