Length around 4 mm. Perhaps the most difficult of all leafhopper genera, with 21 UK species, of which only two are easily identified; the other 19 cannot be identified based on external features alone. E. geometrica is one of the few that can be distinguished without microscopy. A very strikingly-marked species, and the dark stripe along the corial-claval suture is diagnostic. The ground colour varies from whitish to yellow.
May be found on Alder.
Widespread in Britain, but not normally common. Perhaps absent from the extreme north.
Status in Leicestershire and Rutland not known.
