Planthoppers Playing Dead?

Hi all! This is my first post here, so I hope I am putting this in the right part of the forums! I recently observed a planthopper that was evidently playing dead, and I was curious if this was a known behavior in planthoppers as well as in the specific genus or species that I observed.

Here is a link to the observation: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/195293359#activity_identification_bc8bccaa-1df3-4088-be4a-76a288ec7d33

Hope I did this correctly, please give me feedback if not! Thanks in advance.
