The grasses erupt with tiny jumping things. They don’t go far. Finding one isn’t easy because they’re so small. They’re leafhoppers.
iNaturalist members say this one is is in genus Dikraneura.
And one, even smaller, with no common name, Kosswigianella perusta. Indeed, this wasn’t even a species in the iNaturalist database.
Gray Lawn Leafhopper (Exitianus exitiosus).

    Hi Matthew,

    Have you ever seen Andreas Kay’s South American leafhoppers? If you
    haven’t, they are worth taking a look. Mother Nature has a wild imagination.
    His other photos too…
