Caption: Three cornered alfalfa hopper. Macrophotograph of a three cornered alfalfa hopper (Spissistilus festinus), resting on a leaf. This insect occurs throughout the southern USA. It feeds on the fluids of leguminous plants, including alfalfa, clover and beans, using its needle-like mouthparts to pierce the stem. The adult (seen here) is a strong flier and can migrate significant distances. Magnification: x25 at 35mm size.
