Two-lined Spittlebug

Two-lined Spittlebug [Prosapia bicinta] photos were taken in Flat Rock, North Carolina on 4 August 2017, found on a side window of my vehicle. The NWF Field Guide to Insects and Spiders of North America, page 136, says “adults jump when they are disturbed; they also release a yellow fluid from the feet, which might serve to deter predators.”
