What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

Second attempt: please help!
Hello bugman,
Love the new site layout. Great job!
This is my second attempt at identifying this bug. I have searched and searched, and can not find it anywhere, including other websites. I found this bug while pulling weeds in a mulched landscape bed in Wichita, Kansas back in June ’08.
My guess is that it is some kind of juvenile or nymph, but I have no clue as to what kind. It was very thin bodied, and had kind of reddish colored eyes.
I have video of it walking around in case you’re interested.
Thanks in advance,
Brandon Clark

Hi Brandon,
This is an immature Treehopper in the family Membracidae. We went through the submissions on BugGuide, but did not see a match. Perhaps someone will recognize your specimen and write in with a comment.
