Black Flat-head Leafhopper

Stenocotis depressa


I was looking at an orchid flower, when that leafhopper landed on my hand. I took a couple of pictures, before he jumped away, and it took me several hours to conclude in to a species...I believe it is a Stenocotis depressa, of the Cicadellidae Family .
