|A BIT ABOUT BUGS
Extremley variable in colour, with the head and pronotum varying from pale to grey-brown or chestnut brown. This is one of the typical colourations, with the clavus and apices of the forewings suffused greyish.
The species can be abundant on some trees, but most notably beech, which hosts few other leafhoppers. There is a similar species, F. carri, which occurs locally on oak, and can only be reliably distinguished by microscopic examination.
Adult: June to October
Length 3.5-4 mm
