Leafhopper Nymph

Updated on Sunday, May 9, 2021

Leafhopper Nymph

I spotted this odd looking bug in my porch a few weeks ago. It looks like a wingless fly with a hairy tail that wouldn't look out of place on a fly sized horse.

My Google-fu failed me so I turned to JustAnswer. Random insect identification isn't your typical veterinary question but Rebeccavet came through for me via a taxonomist in Kenya and told me it's a Leafhopper (Cicadellidae) nymph. Given this information Google Images confirmed that this seems like the most likely possibility.

(Full disclosure - I work at JustAnswer.)

Catfood Earth for Android 1.20

Catfood Earth for Android 1.20

I recently upgraded to the HTC One which has a transparent notification bar. This makes it hard to see notification icons when using Catfood Earth as your wallpaper, at least in the summer when it's always light at high latitudes and your white icons are displayed on top of polar ice and clouds.

Catfood Earth for Android 1.20 fixes this with an option to paint black under the notification bar. That's the only update other than the latest Xamarin runtime.
