Doratura stylata (Boheman, 1847)
Doratura stylata is found in grassy habitats lying on dry soils across the southern-half of the UK. The females (shown below right photograph) are distinctive, thanks to their elongated gonoplacs which extend from the end of the abdomen. The current lack of interest in Leafhoppers (Cicadellidae) means that there are often few records of many species from Nottinghamshire, though it is likely to be more common than the distribution map would suggest.
