I had no idea this this is a rare Planthopper! Andy Hamilton was able to ID this hopper and is apparently rare! "The flattened head and reticulate wing tips are distinctive. This is thought to be only species in its genus, and is known from very few localities. Of the 6 known specimens, two were taken on yucca (probably the specimens from AZ), suggesting that there are actually more than one species." Black and gray Planthopper about 4 mm long. The wings are patterned on the bottom. Only shot before it ran off.
