A planthopper is any insect in the infraorder Fulgoromorpha within the Hemiptera. The name comes from their remarkable resemblance to leaves and other plants of their environment and from the fact that they often "hop" for quick transportation in a similar way to that of grasshoppers. However, planthoppers generally walk very slowly so as not to attract attention. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Planthoppe...

Katydid or bush cricket nymph. Whenever the antennae are longer than the body it puts it in the Tettigoniidae family.
