Very colorful (with a flash) but small (1/2 inch) insect - treehopper, still searching for the exact ID. Many varieties, colors and shapes.
I finally have an ID on this little tree hopper. It is a Telamona pyramidata. I am glad mine is extra colorful though.
Thank you Carol! I like this one. They're so little that they're hard to find :)
Cindy, Sending my hopper your way. Still do not have a confirmed ID. Cool new group! This is the only tree hopper I found.
At first, I was interested in native brazilian flowers and birds.Then I started to watch insects, and discovered how beautiful (or strange) they are. Now, I think I am becoming a real bug nut...
Funny, I just deleted it because I found that out. I thought for sure. I had to check 3 sources before they listed the color. Urgh!
I don't think it is a buffalo treehopper as that species is bright green.
Insanity is all in the mind!!!! :)
yep, I love bugs as well, they are amazing!
People think I am insane! That's OK, I like being insane, it is a lot of fun! HA!
I'm happy to hear I'm not the only one to get really excited over a bug! :)
WOW! That was easy! It's so cute! LOL! I haven't gotten a photo of a treehopper before. I am very excited!
yep, this is a Membracid Treehopper. Minute bugs feeding on plant sap.
Maybe genus Telonaca? http://bugguide.net/node/view/165817/bgp...
Interesting little critter indeed...
It's a treehopper of some kind if that helps!
