Sub-orders Auchenorrhyncha and Sternorrhyncha were previously classified together in the order Homoptera. "Homoptera" means "Same-wing". Both pairs of wings are similar in type. Now that they are classified in Order Hemiptera, the name has a little less meaning. A large number of species in this order are consiered plant pests,not just from feeding on the plants but through the transmission of virus and bateria that cause plant disease.

"The way a child discovers the world constantly replicates the way science began. You start to notice what's around you, and you get very curious about how things work. How things interrelate. It's as simple as seeing a bug that intrigues you. You want to know where it goes at night; who its friends are; what it eats." - David Cronenberg
