We saw several of these bugs in Hebei province (east of Beijing, on the coast) in early September. The body was a real eye opening red! Any ideas of species?

Dear Su,
Though it is commonly called a White Cicada,
 Lycorma delicatula is actually a Fulgorid Leafhopper.  Your images are of winged adults.  We have more images in our archive of the brightly colored nymphs.

THANK YOU!  That was really helpful.  I think the pictures of the nymphs are amazing.
