Eupelix cuspidata (Fabricius, 1775)
Although this species is widespread over much of the UK, Eupelix cuspidata is by no means regarded as being common. A characteristic species of dry, grassy areas, we found this one among the sparse grass and stony ground of a former railway line at Warsop Main Pit Top in June 2016. This is one Leafhopper (Cicadellidae) which poses no real identification problems.
