Alebra wahlbergi (Boheman, 1845)
A Leafhopper found on a range of trees, Alebra wahlbergi is one of four (difficult to identify) species of Alebra that are characterised by having a membranous area of the wing-tip not bisected by veins. The one illustrated, was beaten from the foliage of a selection of young deciduous trees/bushes, at Cockglode Wood near Edwinstowe in early August 2016. There appear to be few (if any) previous Nottinghamshire records.
