Sharpshooter


Cardioscarta sp. or Poeciloscarta sp., leafhopper photo from Costa Rica

 

Family: Cicadellidae

Subfamily: Cicadellinae

Tribe: Cicadellini

Length: hopper in photo 7.9 mm

 

This leafhopper is a bit of a puzzler. One this colorful and well-marked should be easy to match to a known genus and species. The best possible ID is that it appears to be in genus Cardioscarta or in genus Poeciloscarta.

Photo location: Tuis, Cartago province, Costa Rica.
