Eupteryx decemnotata (Rey, 1891)
Eupteryx decemnotata has only been known from the UK since 2002 and it is now considered to be widespread across southern counties of the UK. This is another Leafhopper which is found on Sage (Salvia officinalis) often in company with the larger Eupteryx melissae and the two will occur on even the smallest of bushes. All our Cicadellidae (Leafhoppers) are under recorded in Nottinghamshire, but E. decemnotata is probably common wherever its host plant is grown.
