Flatid Planthopper

Description:

A large infestation of these Plant hoppers was found on the stems and undersides of the leaves. The adults ranged in color from a greenish white to a bluish white. All were powdery looking. Some adults were tending all stages of nymphs mixed up in waxy excretions. Ants were also in attendance. Others were evenly distributed from one another and all facing in the same direction on the undersides of the leaves (see last 2 pictures). Family Flatidae.

Habitat:

Found on a patch of Sea Grape along the Atlantic side of the shoreline below the Fortress of San Felipe del Morro, San Juan, Puerto Rico.
