|Populicerus albicans (Kirschbaum, 1868)
|This quite distinctively pale leafhopper found on White and Grey Poplar. The general lack of interest in the county's leafhopper fauna, often means that there are few documented records, which in turn incorrectly leads to the assumtion that many species are either uncommon or rare. Populicerus albicans does have a restricted Nottinghamshire distribution, but this restriction is forced by the distribution of the host plant more than anything. It is likely to occur wherever White Poplar grows.
