2 strange bugs
Hi Bugman,
I have been trying to identify these for quite some times. I took the pictures in Northern VA. This one is really tiny. You can see that it was sitting on the tip of my finger. This looks like some kind of treehopper but what’s up with the fuzzy feather on the back? Thanks a bunch and I love your website. Especially the Carnage page. I keep telling my friends to not kill wasps, robber fly and assassin bugs 🙂

Wooly Aphid Two lined Plant Hopper


Hi Michael,
Both of your insects are Homopterans. One is a Wooly Aphid and the other is the nymph of the Two Striped Plant Hopper, Acanalonia bivittata. We found a match on Bugguide.
