Aphrophora are large froghoppers that all possess a keel on the vertex and front of pronotum, but some species can be difficult to separate.
The forewings are covered with fine hairs and are uniformly brownish with black puncturation. There are sometimes irregular darker areas. The vertex is rather short; the median length only 1.5x that at the sides.
Found locally on bog myrtle in damp acid bogs, mainly in southern areas of Britain and Ireland.
Adult: August to October
Length 10-12 mm
