My daily picture – Leafhopper nymph parasited by Dryinid Wasp larva

In my post Macro Monday – Unidentified insect – Can you help me?,  I asked for help to identify an insect that I saw for the first time in my life.

 I had headaches and I still have, trying to find out what it is. Someone on another site told me it could be leafhopher nymph but I’m not sure this is the correct answer. It could be froghopper’s nymph, because I have seen many adults froghopper there.

The picture above is definitely a leafhopper nymph. It is known that leafhopper is the host insect for Drying Wasp eggs. You can see the wasp larvae on the back of this nymph.

My question for you is.

  • Do you think is the same insect in the photo above as in the previous post?

    • Yes
    • No

What do you think?
