A large, distinctive leafhopper in which the male is distinctly brachypterous. There is a keel on the vertex (below right), and a variably-shaped dark central marking on a pale background. The forewings are mottled brown and white, and are highly reflective.
In grassy places and wayside vegetation, often in woods. Reasonably common, and widespread in southern Britain (northwards to at least Yorkshire), but rarely abundant.
