I spent a bit of time this morning in the wet meadow where I find the grass pinks. Of course they are long since passed, but there were a few insects found and this is the first I’ll be posting.
I have found these in my yard a few times but this is the freshest so far and first in another location. Nice and dewy with a bit of pink tones. Northern Flatid Planthoppers-Flatormenis proxima cause little harm subsisting on plant juices but not at a rate that would deplete the plant’s own needs. Once they decide you have come too close they can hop (how they got their name) a long way for such a small insect…maybe a 3/8″ in size.
