Is this an adult aphid?

I just took a picture of a weedy plant to send you. This white winged bug was walking on a leaf. I have more aphids in my yard this summer and thought maybe this is the source.

This is a planthopper insect. They are not harmful to landscape plants and no control measures are necessary.
