Hello friends in TN,

I have been trying to capture this little red moth for a while and finally manage a rather decent shot on banana leaf today.


Thanks Siggi for the ID.

Leafhopper is a common name applied to any species from the family Cicadellidae. Leafhoppers, colloquially known as hoppers, are minute plant-feeding insects in the superfamily Membracoidea in the order Homoptera. They belong to a lineage traditionally treated as infraorder Cicadomorpha in the suborder Auchenorrhyncha, but as the latter taxon is probably not monophyletic, many modern authors prefer to abolish the Auchenorrhyncha and elevate the cicadomorphs to a suborder Clypeorrhyncha.

Leafhoppers are found all over the world, and constitute the second-largest hemipteran family. They have at least 20,000 described species. The tribe Proconiini of the subfamily Cicadellinae is commonly known as sharpshooters.

Thanks for viewing!

Hello Jusni,
Very nice photo, although it's a bit overexpopsed in some places. Fine contrasting colours against the green leaf. Excellent sharpness and a good diagonal composition.

Very nice composition from a good point of view with good detail. An interesting insect nicely shown against a green background.
