Re: white leaf hopper


Thanks Donna. didn't see it. It's white like the flatid planthopper and shaped like the green striped leafhopper.
What surprised me was the keelbacked treehopper. It looks much like the varmint I've been asking about the past few years, one I described as a brown army helmet with feet, pulling a wad of cotton behind him. Had quite a few of those this year too.

I don't know your bug, but this site might help id it... lotsa pictures
if you scroll down. Once you get it named, most likely you can find out
all about it elsewhere on the net.

Subject: [CHAT] white leaf hopper


Does anyone have a name for a white leaf hopper type (hops quickly when you
touch it) of insect that leaves a white cottony residue on the tenderest new
stems of plants. I believe it is a sucker, not a chomper. The residue
almost looks like mealy bugs stuff.

Help?
