I noticed a bug I've never seen on a sempervivem indoors today. I inspected all the rest of the plants afterwards and didn't see anymore, just that one lonely little fella (for now at least). It's white and has wings but I didn't see it fly. It was peaking out from under a leaf and when I picked up the plant and started moving it around to get a better look it came out slowly and then hopped quickly to the sempervivem next to it. I got a good pic of it and then tried to catch it and it hopped again and seemed to disappear into thin air. Haven't been able to find him since.

I'm a newbie so I can Google and guess but I really don't know for sure. It looks like a leaf hopper... Hops like a leaf hopper.... Hopefully it's not something more sinister! Any input is welcome!!! Thanks guys!!!

(I know the sempervivem aren't looking good and they should be outside. I got them as a gift in a basket of mixed Succulents and these two were hiding under the rest with no light in poor drainage for God knows how long before I got them. They're in the nursing station right now!)

It looks like a leafhopper to me too.
