Colladonus montanus

Colladonus montanus
I found this tiny leafhopper next to the trail in the Jordanelle Dam wetlands. It's always
exciting to find a brightly-colored one.  © Carol Davis, 6-30-2013

Colladonus species have been reported as spreading various plant diseases including "asters yellow"
according to  this publication (1982).  Even tiny cute things can be a pain for crop growers.
