This little guy was found eating sunflower seedlings. I have never seen anything like it! Is it adult or a nymph? Please help identify! Thank you!

Dear MK Pope,
This is a Treehopper Nymph from the family Membracidae, but our quick search did not produce a species match.  You can try browsing BugGuide for a species identity.
