Thank you bayucca for the correction.. It sure seems a plant hopper. I thought it a cicada because of it's size and the thick transparent wings.

I do notthink that this is a cicada. Looks for me morelike a planthopper. Reminds me of a Dictyopharidae without the prominent nose (they indeed exists!). But I did not find a reasonable match or that and I am not sure about the family. I would guess it is a Fulgoromorpha (not Cicadamorpha) and might be a Fulgoroidea. Maybe you or others find more about...
