Caption: Cuckoo spit (Philaenus spumarius), artwork. This species is also known as the common froghopper. It derives its name from the protective frothy foam that the nypmhs surround themselves with. Measuring only 6.3mm long, it is able to jump 70 centimetres into the air. The nymphs are found on plants in late spring and summer.
