Acericerus heydenii (Kirschbaum, 1868)
This attractive and fairly distinct leafhopper is associated with Sycamore and was found new to Nottinghamshire by Tim Sexton at the NWT's Attenborough Nature Reserve in January 2019. Only discovered in the UK for the first time as recently as 2010, there are several similar species to make identification less straight forward.
