Ricania Taeniata

Ricania taeniata (黑带广翅蜡蝉).

In spite of the frequent rain, there have been plenty of insects out and active. On some reeds near the Xiang river there were many of these plant-hoppers. The are remarkable for the audible mating call they emit: I don't recall another plant-hopper one can hear!
