This bug was on my shirt after a walk through the park in Florida. He stayed on my shirt until I got home and I was able to lift him off onto a paper towel. After several photos he fly away. Please help me ID.
Signature: Thanks, Eric C.
This distinctive insect is an Oak Treehopper, Platycotis vittata, so we are guessing that the park you were visiting contained Oak Trees.
Thanks so much for the information. Very interesting. Yes we have Live Oak all around us!
