Sanctanus fasciatus

A charming little mottled yellow, brown and cream leafhopper, native to the southeastern United States and Central America down into northern South America.

This could be some other member of Sanctanus — another genus mostly distinguished by tiny differences in genitalia — but it very strongly resembles this individual on bugguide.net.

It’s perching on a dark purple car — with a couple tweaks, suddenly this was a studio shot on an expensive reflective acrylic surface.
