The query refers to this article: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-48383730
Some years ago - around the time I started using this site, I made a comment or an identification (can’t remember which), about Cercopsis vulnerata (red-and-black froghopper), which prompted a comment from someone with a “good” reputation to tell me that the nymphs of this species don’t produce “cuckoo spit”.
But this article suggests that they do.
I’d sooner trust someone with several iSpot reputation icons than a journalist, but who’s right here?
You cannot hope to bribe or twist
The noble British journalist
But, seeing what he’s apt to do,
Unbribed, there’s no reason to."
