    An acquaintance found some of these on his Aloe

    and I can't understand what they are.
    But the "succulent" world is a world of which I know absolutely nothing. I only have a bowl of Echinopsis with a beautiful bloom that lasts the space of an admired smile they gave me.

    I only have these two photo and, although I know they may not be enough, I try to insert them.
    I hope someone can help us!

    I kept looking and I think I spotted unwanted guests.
    I really think it's Ricania speculum nymphs.
    Ricania speculum is one of the most recent alien insects arrived in Italy from Southeast Asia.
    It looks like a butterfly, but in reality it is closer to cicadas; it belongs, in fact, to the order of the Rhynchota, the same as the cicadas and plant bugs.
    Thanks anyway!

    Good afternoon @Arlette, just seen this thread, that is exactly what they are.
