Australian Eurybrachyidae (18th Feb)
I noticed Colette’s photo of some wort of wattle or gum hopper. I can sympathise with her being flummoxed! I took a photo of a similar strange little bug last year and was very puzzled. Recently, nearby, I found an adult green-faced gum hopper, and worked backward to what I assume was its nymph form. The gum hopper is very small and its beautiful colours only become apparent when the photo is enlarged somewhat. I quite like the nymph – a person with Attitude!
