Eurhadina concinna

Description

Length 4 mm. Leafhoppers in this genus have a characteristically rather flattened appearance, especially as nymphs. The forewings are wider across the middle than at the tip, the head is markedly narrower than the pronotum and the vertex lacks black markings. 

Similar Species

The exact pattern of dark markings on the wing veins separates three of the five UK species. The critical feature in E. concinna is the presence of a dark streak on the external apical vein, rather than a round spot as in E. pulchella. This marking is completely absent in the similar E. loewii, which occurs on sycamore. However, note that the external morphology of E. concinna is identical to the much rarer E. ribauti, which can also be found on oak.

Identification difficulty
Recording advice

E. concinna can only be separated from the  much rarer E. ribauti (also found on oak) by gen det of males.
