Cicadula is a large and difficult genus of yellow-green leafhoppers, frequently with black spots on the vertex and rather long antennae. Dissection of males is often required for definitive identication.
C. frontalis is usually rather brownish-green in colour and there are no dark spots on the vertex. The antennae are extremely long and there is a dark patch at the base of each antenna.
Widespread in England in marshy places with tall Carex or Scirpus species; also occurs on coasts.
Adult: June to August
