Greenish dictyaphorid planthopper (genus Dictyophara (Germar, 1833), tribe Dictyopharini), on camote tops (sweet potato plant). I found this hopper hanging out with some grasshoppers on the same leaf and nearby leaves. Dictyopharidae (Spinola, 1839) is a family of bugs in the suborder Auchenorrhyncha belonging to the infraorder Fulgoromorpha, superfamily Fulgoroidea. The family comprises nearly 760 species in more than 150 genera.
Spotted in the backyard on camote tops (sweet potato plant).
