Green Leafhopper

Cicadella viridis


The adult males of Cicadella viridis can reach a length of 5.7–7 millimetres, but the females are quite larger than the males, reaching 7.5–9 millimetres. Their pronotum and scutellum are green and yellow. The front head is pale yellow, with two black spots near the compound eyes. The forewings are turquoise green in the females, blue or dark bluish in males (sexual dimorphism). The abdomen is bluish-black. The larvae are yellowish and have two brownish stripes running from head to the end of the abdomen.


These leafhoppers inhabit rough grassy areas, peat bogs and mires, wet meadows, near marshes or in swampy habitats, but sometimes live also in drier areas.
