There are certain insects which I am always on the lookout for as they are such interesting ones and can never seem to find. I saw a picture of this Treehopper in my book and was so pleased to eventually find it.
No wonder I have not been able to find it as they are very small, maybe 4mm in length and at first I thought it was a baby grasshopper.
All Treehoppers are recognised by their horn-like structures extending back over their abdomen.
They are classified as bugs (Hemiptera) and belong to the Membracidae family.
