[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [Portuguese]
Small butterfly. I believe that it is a butterfly. Anyway very small he/she has 1,5 centimeters more or less.
She is placed on my index finger.
I will put another picture in WORKSHOP.
She had a lot of patience with me... He... He... it was Turned in my finger and in my palm of the hand for several times. The difficult went to handle the camera with an alone hand...
The bottom is natural there was not manipulation!
It won't be easy to happen again!
I liked the animal! Your opinion will be very important!

Please, who has the right "identity" of this insect I thank...
Thank you!

Que mimo, dá muito bem para perceber que ela é muito pequena, uma borboleta (pelo menos parece uma) muito simpática e bonita mesmo sendo branca e preta. Um excelente momento, uma excelente macro. Muito boa foto.

Hi Jose, it looks more like a moth, but a very interesting one. A bit soft focussed but a nice image with good PoV.
Thanks for sharing.

Hi Reynaldo, I think a good place to start looking for an ID would be the Planthoppers/Froghoppers/Treehoppers. Nice shot of this very unusual beast. Good details and composition, well done.

What an unusual little critter, Jose, And a very pretty one at that. I like it a lot too. I like the interesting pattern and the contrast of the black and white. I think it is some kind of bug, not a butterfly. The focus is a bit soft, but it is definitely a shot worth sharing. Thanks. : )

Estou sorprendido de atopar esta besta tan extranha. E curioso, mais non recordo ver nada parecido a isto na minha vida. Obrigado por mostrala. Saudos.

Pelo tamanho da borboleta (seria um Planthoppers?!)ela pousada em seu dedo, a nitidez está ótima. Muito boa macro, como muita gente comentou eu nunca tinha visto algo igual.

Hi, Jose, it's Homopteran bug, member of the family Membracidae (treehoppers).
Excellent picture, but You can sharpen it a little
Best wishes,

Hi Jose,
Yes it's really a quite typical (and beautiful) species of Membracidae family, Membracis foliata.

Best regards,

amazing little creature, TFS Ori

May be it's a member of Membracidae(Homoptera, Insecta).

Caro José Fonseca. Esse pequeno inseto não é uma borboleta e não pertence a ordem Lepidoptera. Na verdade se trata de um Heteroptera, sub-ordem Homoptera, família Membracidae. Esses insetos possuem projeções no estutelo que podem parecer espinhos ou até mesmo asas.
Espero ter ajudado.
