My recent post on Zygina flammigera ** referred to the possibility of it overwintering in our Yew tree. I went and had a look: I saw only one Zygina but quite a few of the very active hoppers that are the subject of this post. Zygina (more than one, still very active) was around but on nearby trees on which I recollect seeing only one of the present hopper. None of the leafhoppers were obviously feeding and my present guess is that both species were involved in mating activity at locations which, while quite close to each other, were mutually exclusive in significant degree
**(“Active leafhopper”: to iSpot 14th April 2013)
Thanks for that ID
If you have any Sycamore nearby there could be a chance of Z. pulchra. Yew, amongst other evergreens, (Leylandii for another), both good shelters for overwintering Z. pulchra, (and a good few other leafhoppers).
