Yes, ForestDragon, I am not sure too, but that is the closest I could get. I should have let it clear. I actualy spotted this species before (http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/846...), but I ID'd it at family level only. I am taking my suggestion back.

Beautiful series!
Sergio, I am not sure this is the same species you have suggested. The color pattern seems a bit different to me.
I found this one, which looks like the same species but no ID on this one either:

This looks like an adult Spittlebug(Cercopide) similar(but not the same) to the Two-lined Spittlebug we have in North America.
