Rhododendron leafhopper

Graphocephala fennahi


The Rhododendron leafhopper (Graphocephala fennahi), so named as it feeds on the sap of rhododendrons, is native to the USA. The species was introduced to Great Britain in the 1930s and continental Europe in the 1970s. There has been suggestion that the rhododendron leafhopper contributes to the spread of a Rhododendron fungus through Europe.
