Planthopper laying eggs by melvynyeo Planthopper laying eggs by melvynyeo
Plant-hopper are plentiful here but this is my first spotting of one laying eggs :) Taken at night in Singapore.

Quote from en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Planthop…
A planthopper is any insect in the infraorder Fulgoromorpha within the Homoptera. The name comes from their remarkable resemblance to leaves and other plants of their environment and from the fact that they often "hop" for quick transportation in a similar way to that of grasshoppers. However, planthoppers generally walk very slowly so as not to attract attention. Distributed worldwide, all members of this group are plant-feeders, though surprisingly few are considered pests. The infraorder contains only a single superfamily, Fulgoroidea. Fulgoroids are most reliably distinguished from the other members of the classical "Homoptera" by two features; the bifurcate ("Y"-shaped) anal vein in the forewing, and the thickened, three-segmented antennae, with a generally round or egg-shaped second segment (pedicel) that bears a fine filamentous arista.
