Cercopis Vulnerata

Have you ever wondered what hides inside cuckoo spit? Well a few weeks ago my father-in-law blogged a photo of a froghopper larva that had been knocked out of some cuckoo spit in his garden. Interestingly just a day or so before I'd actually seen and photographed an adult red and black froghopper, Cercopis Vulnerata, in our garden.

Yes, while the English names are great, I find the Latin ones make blog titles that are just irresistible!
