Common Green Planthopper (Siphanta hebes)
Also known as the Green or Green Mottled Planthopper, the common green planthopper is a small species of flatid planthopper native to Australia. Like other planthoppers this species is often seen on plants where it feeds on sap from their leaves. When disturbed it can jump great distances to avoid predation, earning it the common name of ‘planthopper’. Although this species is usually green, a few (very rare) light blue morphs have been observed.
