Leafhoppers at the Porch Light

When people use lights to attract insects, they are often focused on moths. However, many other insects show up at these lights including beetles, flies, butterflies, stoneflies, and leafhoppers. Last night, while looking for moths (I'm up to 85 species for the month!), I also took a close at some of the the leafhoppers. Here are some of the more interesting ones that I found and photographed:

Japanese Leafhopper - Orientus ishidae

Alebra aurea

Tylozygus bifidus


Draeculacephala zeae
