Hi Roger
I've looked at Stenocotis sp on ALA.
http://bie.ala.org.au/species/urn:lsid:biodiversity.org.au:afd.taxon:d968d4a8-9977-4bdc-97d9-c58fb55619d4
They are typically more flat than my specimen.

Also the Black Flat-head Leafhopper - Stenocotis depressa, is quite flat compared to mine, see:

This specimen doesn't seem to be flat enough to be a Stenocotis sp.

I don't think this is Stenocotis, which as you say Michael is flatter.

I put this leafhopper on BowerBird to see if I could get an ID.
Ken Walker did it for me, but had the advice of Murray Fletcher who has considerable expertise. See:
