I found this leafhopper inside my house this morning and quickly ushered it into a jar and outside onto some plants. The color and patterns seem quite distinctive and my best guess is that it is in the Genus Gyponana, but would really appreciate your thoughts/expertise. Attaching lateral and side view.
