Almost bioluminescent looking planthopper! planthopper is any insect in the infraorder Fulgoromorpha, exceeding 12,500 described species worldwide.
The name comes from their remarkable resemblance to leaves and other plants of their environment and from the fact that they often “hop” for quick transportation in a similar way to that of grasshoppers. However, planthoppers generally walk very slowly so as not to attract attention.
Distributed worldwide, all members of this group are plant-feeders, though surprisingly few are considered pests..
