The bug was hanging on a red plastic lid in front of our house.

    This is a planthopper nymph, probably the Palm Planthopper (Magia subocellata). It is a true Bug! !

  • Thank you Norm, yes it looks just like it with the antenas, you had a nice one visiting you as well.

    I love insects almost as much as fungi….was thinking it was a type of planthopper but wasn’t positive. the nymphs are pretty difficult but figured if I started there……
    There was another I saw in the images that had a ‘fluffy’ tail. Amazing little creatures! Your image still topped them all though. This guy is just fabulous

  • Thank you Carla for your research and informations plus your nice comment.
    Normf { see comment above} had a cousin of this bug at his place recently and he identified it as a palm planthopper Magia subocellata, so it’s very similar as what you come up with, and effectively this one had a double long tail fluffy at it’s end
