Red-eyed flatid planthopper

Cryptoflata unipunctata

Description:

Wingspan 26 mm, pale green with red eyes. Adults jump well, but are weak fliers.

Notes:

Adults of some species have brightly coloured wings and are easily identified but the identification of species often requires dissection and comparison with identification keys.
