Aetalion reticulatum, a very primitive treehopper that is placed in its own family (Aetalionidae). Like true treehoppers, they show some social behaviors and are tended by hymenopterans, but apparently they diverged from the main treehopper stock before the appearance of outlandishly expandions and ornamentations of the pronotum.
