I found this insect in my garden on my sunflower leaves. It was in the evening and the temperature was kind of cool. I found it in June.
Sadly, though it is quite beautiful, the Candystriped Leafhopper, Graphocephala coccinea, is not considered to be a beneficial insect in gardens. The Urban Wildlife Guide is a nice source of information on the species.
