Unknown nightshade pest

Type: Insect

Effect: Pest

Location / Where this Creature is found:

On my eggplant in Hawaii. They love nightshades. I have never been able to identify this pest.


Spiny, black nymphs. Adults are green and can fly. Adults look different as they have a semi-round flat body that sticks straight up. I'll have to take a picture when I see an adult.

General information about Unknown nightshade pest :

I find these on my eggplants and tomatoes. I believe the nymphs are black with thorny spines. They seem to be tended by ants, but they are not aphids (I don't think). I also believe that the adults are green and look like a round blade. They fly.
