This is a planthopper nymph, probably the Palm Planthopper (Magia subocellata) which is about 10mm long (excluding the tail).The adults in this family have elongated transparent fore wings. This is a small hopper family. All of them jump, so is their common name planthoppers. Leafhoppers, Treehoppers and Planthoppers have the move aerodynamic-shaped body in the insect world. This is shaped by evolution. All of them are strong jumpers. When they jump, they have the highest speed in the insect world. Most ambush predators do not target at them because of their high speed of escape. Some other insects even mimic treehoppers to cheat predators.
