Lantana Treehopper

Aconophora compressa


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.


Semi-urban area on the outskirts of the city, 2,200 meters.

Lauren, if you read the instructions for creating a mission, you'll see that you are allowed to create local missions only. Besides, there is already a global "Hoppers" mission, which includes leaf and tree hoppers. Please, delete this mission. For more info, please go to the FAQ page: http://www.projectnoah.org/faq
