I found this bug in Ecuador a few years ago, and I just can’t seem to identify it! I’d really appreciate the help.
This is some free-living Hemipteran, probably a Leafhopper, but we have not had any success finding a matching image online. Perhaps one of our readers will have better luck than we have had.

Re: Leafhopper from Ecuador – January 20, 2016
Hi Daniel and Aimee:
It’s a wonderful photo of an Aetalionid Treehopper. The species is probably Aetalion reticulatum (Aetalionidae: Aetalioninae: Aetalionini).
We received a similar ID in a comment.

I am almost certain that this is a treehopper in the family Aetalionidae. It looks like others in the genus Aetalion, but I can’t really confirm that suspicion.
Thanks for the comment. We got the same ID from Karl.
