Froghopper nymphs from Cuckoo spit
Froghopper nymphs from Cuckoo spit
Nymphs of Philaenus spumarius from Cuckoo spit on the Mint in NT2470 : Cuckoo Spit on Mint. They are true bugs [Hemiptera], in the entomological sense of the term, and have piercing mouth parts to suck plant sap [see NT2470 : Froghopper nymph - ventral view]. The 'cuckoo spit' bubbles are created by the nymphs, and protects them from predators and from drying out. The nymphs are of different ages and were removed from the foam. They were 4 and 5mm long, and wing buds are visible on the larger, older nymph.
