Buffalo treehopper

green hopper in flowerI noticed this shy little bug recently on a flower at the arboretum.
  Buffalo treehopperI teased it out onto the branch where I could get a better look. I was able to identify it as a species of Ceresa, a Buffalo treehopper. Some other Ceresa species have not only a humped back, but buffalo-like "horns" as well. But this one was smooth.
