Although one of several similarly coloured leafhoppers, this is the only yellow Eupteryx species and the apical forewing venation and overall shape should confirm the genus on closer inspection.
The vertex, pronotum and scutellum are yellow and more or less unmarked; the forewings are mainly olive green-yellow with the final third smoky grey. The length of the vertex is approximately two-thirds its width between the eyes.
Associated with ferns in a variety of habitats and found locally throughout England and Wales.
Adult: June to October (and later)
Length 3-4 mm
