Brown Treehoppers, adults about 6 mm long with an almost equally tall thoracic horn. The nymphs are banded and spiny with red eyes, while the adults have white eyes. The 5th picture shows the female sitting on an egg mass. The last picture shows how incredibly camouflaged this treehopper can be. The adults stay with the nymphs.
