This little Spittlebug made me do a double-take when I first saw it. The false eye at the end of the abdomen fooled me for a second! I had to see which way the legs were pointed to know for sure where the head was located! The true eye can barely be seen just below the middle yellow stripe on the left. Thanks to Rita at Bugguide.net for helping me identify this one!
