Found on a Dianella plant.
Thanks Leuba - I wondered what the plants were! I'll add it to the info.
Fantastic series! the bug looks so cute and it's on a Dionella sp ( pic #3). Really great Rachael. I wish I could get such clarity..
Ahh you beat me to it Argy, thanks :-)
Found it! http://www1.dpi.nsw.gov.au/keys/cercopid...
Ooohh that's a good match too!
They definitely are spittlebugs - the nearest I can find so far is a WA species but they won't tell us a name !! http://www.pir.sa.gov.au/forestry/forest...
No, not at all - purely an assumption that there were lots of them and lots of spittle! Is this a planthopper instead then?
Are you sure this bug is related to that spittle?
