hopper

It's a Eupteryx sp - these are small metallic hoppers which are associated with labiates, feeding on the secretions from the hairs. This looks very like Eupteryx melissae, which is frequently found on Sage - it does however turn up on many other plants

No-one has agreed in 4 years.
I have done so on the basis of a thorough rummage through the Webcellar - where there are now several thousand decent lookalikes.
I am trawling historical postings - purely personal.
