There are two species of Hemiptera present: two tube-dwelling nymphs of Chaetophyes compacta (Machaerotidae) and a free-living adult Cicadellidae sp. Plus the meat ants. Which do you want to record?

Thanks Roger. On this occasion I was trying to focus on the Cicadellidae.

The Chaetophyes nymph is a new record so I will ask MichaelB how to record 2 species in the one photo.

I will make a separate record for the second Cicadellidae
