Upright-winged Planthopper

Danepteryx sp.

Description:

Small, brown, black and white Issid Planthopper that keeps its wings lifted. Unfortunately this one has been attacked by mites :(

Habitat:

White sage in Oak forest.

Notes:

"Probably D. barberae; but you can't see the wing venation clearly enough to distinguish the one darker longitudinal vein characteristic of this species." - Andy Hamilton via BugGuide
