It's been awhile since I've seen this insect. So long, as a matter of fact, that I couldn't remember the name of it. In referring to Latin American Insects and Entomology by Charles Hogue, I discovered that it's a red-dotted planthopper, Lystra strigata. The common name certainly didn't strike a bell. I vaguely remember it as wax-tailed something or other. Well, I guess what's important is that it still exists.
