Anotia kirkaldyi

Anotia kirkaldyi

A planthopper species of the family Derbidae.
Anotia kirkaldyi I was pleased to find this Derbid next to our sliding door this morning. Haven't seen enough of them this year! I'm guessing A. kirkaldyi (as opposed to A. bonnetii) based on the bold diagonal wing stripe. Anotia kirkaldyi,Geotagged,Planthopper Anotia kirkaldyi,Summer,United States

Appearance

A colorful species, with a reddish-brown color pattern on the wings and body. While the wing venation is pale, this species can be differentiated from others by the bold, dark diagonal stripe along one of the veins. The outer edge of the wings has red markings, and the thorax and abdomen are reddish. There are 2 (or more) red marks on the sides of the head, around the eye. The antennal stubs are reddish-brown.

Distribution

Eastern United States.

Food

Assumed to feed on fungal hyphae as immatures.
