Spittlebug by The-Dude-L-Bug Spittlebug by The-Dude-L-Bug
The other night, this little Spittlebug flew past me & landed on the wall.
Quite small, approx. 5-6mm.
From the colors & the striped snout, I think it's a Clastoptera.

An amazing take, Jim, with all that detail. I've just read up on spittlebugs - I reckon we have some species over here.

Great Stuff

OK but ya really have to look hard.
They're small & look very similar to leafhoppers.
You can tell where they've laid their eggs if you find a blob of small bubbles on a weed.
(It'll look as though something came along horked a glob of spit at the joint of a branch & the stem.)

Odd to see one inside the house for sure.
They're usually covered found on the stem of plant & covered bubbles.

I know. 
At first thought it was some kind of leafhopper.
