Hello, I found this moth? in the swimming pool and happily it was still alive. I have never seen anything like it before. I put it in a glass in order to be able to photograph the underneath as well as the wing. It is about 12mm in length. I hope that you can help with identifying it.

Though it is not a true moth, this Planthopper in the family Eurybrachyidae is commonly called a Moth Bug in South Africa. We identified it as Paropioxys jucundus on iSpot.
