Looks like this one, identified as a Pseudococcidae sp. http://www.flickr.com/photos/28859910@N0...
Wow! it looks like it's eating the ant.
Incredible, especially photo 3! It looks a little like a mealybug destroyer (Cryptolaemus sp.) too.
Just a guess, but maybe it's a Fulgorid planthopper nymph. It's also possible that the ant is feeding off of 'honeydew' being produced by the other insect. Good luck.
Might be a melebug distroyer
Wow!! I don't know bugs, but is it eating the ant? If that's the head, it almost looks mantis-like! Very cool and very strange!!
POSSIBLY A SCALE INSECT.
Doesn't even look as something alive :)
