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. quadrinotata and C. persimilis are both common species which have four large black spots on the vertex, near the eyes. They are best separated with reference to the male genitalia.
C. quadrinotata is widespread in Britain, mainly in damp grasslands where it is associated with rushes and sedges.
