Arthaldeus pascuellus (Fallén, 1826)
Common and widespread in many parts of the UK and severely under recorded in Nottinghamshire. Found in dry, grassy areas, the majority of the county's published records are the result of invertebrate survey work. Not an easy Leafhopper to identify, there is one other species of Arthaldeus in the UK and a whole range of similarly coloured species for confusion.
