Populicerus confusus (Flor, 1861) 
This quite large leafhopper is probably well distributed across Nottinghamshire. Found on Salix caprea (Goat Sallow) it is probably best located by beating foliage in the late Summer and Autumn. The one illustrated, was beaten from a large Sallow situated in the centre of Duke's Wood near Eakring, in late September 2018.
