Is this the wackiest beast we have yet discovered in the garden? Well it reminds me of something out of Robot Wars. It is larger than other leafhoppers or froghoopers. It has quite a jump too. The camouflage is unbeatable but what are those 'ears' for?

I found it on a Hawthorn in the garden. It is species of oak woods so I expect it was attracted to moth lights.
