Just a guess based on other observations. It looks like there is a population in Key West which contains all observations of them in Florida. I guess this might be a newly documented area for these exotics farther north (assuming ID is even correct)

Doesn't look like their range extends this far north here either, though map might just be slightly inaccurate: https://nas.er.usgs.gov/queries/FactSheet.aspx?SpeciesID=3806

Found this Palm Flatid Planthopper (Ormenaria rufifascia) on a Saw Palmetto frond that had succumbed to this fungus (Possible Hirsutella sp. If so, then most likely H. citriformis). There were other live and healthy (?) hoppers on the same frond. Not certain how pathogenic this fungus is, so not certain if they are infected. Thank you @b_gonzalez for your sleuth work, and for bringing this observation hopefully one step closer to being fully identified.

This tiny lacewing larva bit my skin with its mandibles when I held it (photo #2). It left the area itchy as it possibly injected saliva containing digestive enzymes, through a groove on its mandibles. Thank you @b_gonzalez for the info and for allowing this tiny creature to bite you while I took photos 3 and 4
