Free Living Hemipteran

Dear Adrian,
This is a wonderful image.  We believe this is a Free Living Hemipteran, a group that includes Planthoppers and Treehoppers, but we are uncertain of the family to which it belongs.  Perhaps one of our readers will be able to determine a species for us.

Thanks for that.  I thought it must be a plant hopper of sorts.  I’ve got lots of the common green and brown ones in my garden but I have never come across this guy before.  Very different.
If you want or need macro shots of insects for reference, I have more than 200 different insects in my garden!  I walk around the garden almost every day and each time I find at least one new species I haven’t seen before. Most interesting.
