The Membracidae (Hemiptera) often can be recognized by the very well-developed pronotum, which may cover the head, assume unusual shapes, and extend back over the abdomen (Wood 1993; Wallace 2008).
Membracidae comprises about 400 genera and over 3,200 species (McKamey, 1998; Dietrich et al., 2001; Florez et al., 2015) grouped into nine subfamilies, eight of which are restricted to the New World (Deitz et al., 2008; Campodonico, 2015).

In the introduction to his beautiful study of periodical cicadas (Magicicada spp.), Marshall (2000) wrote that "the brilliant may occasionally manage to anticipate significant discoveries while wading through the confusion of published information, to guess correctly when and where to look and what to measure, but for the rest of us the best investment is simply time spent in the field testing the best questions we have at the moment, watching and listening to the organisms, and waiting for the surprises." It was in this spirit that I started studying the treehopper Ennya chrysura (Fairmaire, 1846; Membracidae, Smiliinae, Polyglyptini) and the surprises have been many.
That short list is comprised of one treehopper (Membracidae), two leafhoppers (Cicadellidae), one jumping plant lice (Psyllidae) and one planthopper (Cixiidae).
