CENTRAL FLORIDA CRITTER OF THE DAY: Flatid Planthopper (Flatoidinus sp. likely punctatus)
New to my buggy life list, this planthopper is apparently not a common find. They eat plant material and may choose specific larval hosts. Since sparkleberry is a relatively new addition to my garden, it might explain why I never saw one before.
Superfamily Fulgoroidea – Planthoppers
Family Flatidae – Flatid Planthoppers
Shown on Florida Native Plant: SPARKLEBERRY; FARKLEBERRY (Vaccinium arboreum)
