NB.

Empoasca pteridis only known from Jersey and the Chelsea Physic Garden, so as E. decipiens is phenotypically identical a positive ID can only be made via the microscope, (or DNA), for who knows if the former is just as common as the latter as they both occupy the same habitat. The implications are that every record for E. decipiens/petridis can only be recorded as. ''It's likely to be this but I can't be certain", for unless one has the facilities to determine voucher specimens themselves they must be dispatched to some who has. Check with Ledra.
