    This guy (or girl) was sitting on a leaf of Melissa (Lemon balm) with many relatives on other leaves. About 5-6mm long and very colorful. Does anyone by any chance know who it is?

    Thank you

    And she speaks very highly of you as well :biggrin:.

    (I've never actually seen one in the wild :frown:, our local Detroit insects are much more pedestrian in appearance. Green blends into the leaves/grass, brown blends in with the earth, red blends in with the rust... :biggrin:).

    Glad I was able to help out.

    Regards,

    Jim

    I see one every year or so. They can quickly hop if you try to trap one.

    I didn't try to trap it, just held the plant with my hand because the wind was very strong. It didn't hop away, gave me ample time...
