On my trip to Korea I saw many wonderful bugs. This may be the most baffling one. I can’t tell if it’s a moth or beetle, or something else. I saw it walk and fly. It was about an inch and a half.
Though it is called a White Cicada, your insect is actually a Fulgorid Leafhopper, Lycorma delicatula. There are photos of both the winged adult and red nymph on bjbug.com and you may also read a news story on the Korean Times online website.
