Cuckoospit The froghoppers, or the superfamily Cercopoidea, are a group of Hemipteran insects, in the suborder Auchenorrhyncha. Adults are capable of jumping many times their height and length, giving the group their common name, but they are best known for their plant-sucking nymphs which encase themselves in froth in springtime.

Spittle Bugs/Froghoppers Are Bad Bugs! (Prosapia bicincta Kaldari) or the superfamily Cercopoidea, are a group of insects. A few species are serious agricultural pests. These families are best known for the nymph stage, which produces a cover of frothed-up plant sap resembling spit; froghopper nymphs are therefore commonly known as spittlebugs...
Cercopidae(froghoppers, spittlebugs) order Homoptera - nymphs produce a solution of frothed plant sap for protection(hence the name spittlebug) - adults jump, often have red and black, but can be brown
