Length 3 to 3.5 mm. It can be separated from other Ribautiana species by the oblique white lines along the corial-claval suture, although these may not be well-defined. The vertex is clearly narrower than the pronotum. The darkening at the end of the forewings is typically quite distinct, with three clear dark dots on the wing margin.
Detailed examination of the specimen is needed to identify this species. A photograph alone is not normally sufficient because key features are not obvious and there are one or more similar species.
On brambles and a variety of other plants.
Adult: June to December.
One of the most common cicadellids abundant throughout the UK, with the exception of northern Scotland.
Common in Leicestershire and Rutland.
