Grainy Planthoppers (Mating)

Kallitaxila granulata

Description:

After this spotting (planthopper and beetle) - http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/162..., I checked the sweet potato plant to see if I could find again the planthopper. I did, and I was able to shoot its solo pics. Checked again today, and I saw that it's now a double! :) It has already found a mate!!

Habitat:

Backyard.

Notes:

Pls see notes in this related spotting: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/162...,
