I don’t know what insect this is unfortunately, as it wasn’t labelled. I usually don’t post things I can’t cite or label, but this was too fantastic a creature not to share. And yes, it’s real.

Update: It is an Umbelligerus woldai, a treehopper from Costa Rica.

In looking up treehoppers, I found this little guy as well:
