Horned leafhopper It has taken me a long time to identify this leafhopper. For long I thought it was a moth so I checked moth pictures but couldn&#039;t find something alike there. Till on a compilation photo of leafhoppers I saw the matching image. Looking back I could have seen earlier that it wasn&#039;t a moth, but I still wouldn&#039;t have known what it was else.<br />
