Mountain Leafhopper
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.

Colladonus species have been reported as spreading various plant
diseases including
"asters yellow" disease according to  this publication (1982).
 Even tiny cute things can be a pain for crop growers.  Carol Davis, 6-30-2013
