A distinctive leafhopper with consistent dark markings on a pale yellow or blue-grey background. The only closely related species lack the dark markings on the dorsal surface, and the combination of the vertex markings, the longitudinal streak on pronotum, and the streaks on the forewings are diagnostic. The only superficially similar species is Eupteryx tenella.
A local leafhopper associated with grasses on dry or calcareous hillsides mainly in southern and central England, as far north as Yorkshire.
Adult: July to September
Length ~3-4 mm
