Buffalo Treehopper Nymph Exuvia - Stictocephala bisonia
Nymphs have long, spiny plumes on their dorsal surface. This is the shed skin (exuvia) of a nymph.
Spotted in a rural herb garden.
The taxonomy for buffalo treehoppers is a bit confusing, and I'm not exactly sure what the current consensus is: Stictocephala alta, S. bisonia, S. bizonia, S. bubalus OR Ceresa bubalus, C. alta...???
The buffalo treehopper is a species of treehopper native to North America. It is also sometimes classified as ''Ceresa bisonia''.
