- This page contains pictures and information about Lophopid
Planthoppers that we found in the Brisbane area,
- The adults in this family have elongated transparent fore wings. This is a small hopper family. All
of them jump, so is their common name planthoppers.
- Palm Planthopper
- Magia subocellata, body length 15mm
- We found this planthopper once in Brisbane Botanic Garden on March 2009. It
was resting on palm leaves.
- Palm Planthopper nymph
- ? Magia subocellata, body length 10mm, not include tails.
- We found this planthopper nymph in Brisbane Botanic Garden on Nov 2002.
Its double long tails tell us that it is very close to family Eurybrachyidae.
think this could be the nymph in the Flatidae Family.
Fletcher sent us email suggested that this should in family Lophopidae,
probably Magia subocellata.
