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?
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.
