Thank you Jason for your comment! Actually is the first time that I see one of these and they are totally new to me. I see that the wings are completly developed, so you are right it is an adult.

Hi Daniela...nice photos! You're right...this is Dictyopharidae (although I don't know the genus just now, sorry!). However, this is an adult....you can tell immediately because nymphs don't have fully formed wings like this one does (nymphs have wingpads).

Thanks Luis! I also hope it. I think it is a nymph.
