Little Treehoppers have to be just about the cutest things on the planet. I found this one at the
North Arm Viewing Area of Pineview Reservoir in Weber County, Utah.  © Carol Davis, 7-8-2013

Telamona tremulata
His (or her) little head looks like it's had a few stitches down the middle and the upside-down
dark-colored "V"
on the back gives it some added panache.  As cute as these little things are they
can contribute to disease in aspen as shown in this article by the USDA.   © Carol Davis, 7-8-2013
