Evacanthus interruptus (Linnaeus, 1758)
This colourful leafhopper is common throughout much of the UK, favouring well vegetated, grassy habitats. We have recorded E. interruptus several times, sweeping it from brownfield sites and from grassy margins of fields in arable farmland and have recorded it at MV light. The female (top two photographs) is larger than the male and appear shorter-winged, with both sexes measure around 4-5mm in length.
