leafhopper nymph - Pulpit Hill

This tiny insect was under a leaf (Sycamore or Norway Maple I think), and at first glance I thought it might be a hoverfly larva, but it has legs! Presumably a leafhopper nymph, but it was so distinctively marked I wondered if it might be possible to go further with a name?

Thanks Mick, good to have that confirmed.

If you'd like to remove your agreement to my original identification that will ensure your identification is shown as the most likely one.
