PLANTHOPPER FACTS

Identification
This planthopper is white with pale pink margin round the wings, pink legs and faint pink dot in the centre of the wing. Is this C. acuminata or a different species? One of the photos shows two planthoppers of different size and colour. I'm not sure if this is male and female colour difference, different growth stages, or even different species.
