Adult and immature leafhoppers suck sap from the leaves of plants and cause mottled discolouration. The 3mm-long adults readily spring from the leaves when disturbed. The pest usually overwinters as eggs laid on the plant. These hatch in spring and go on to produce several generations of the pest in a single season. Individual leafhopper species are specific to particular plants or groups of plants. Although most plants are able to survive an attack, leafhopper feeding leaves unsightly marks on foliage.
Yellow to white mottling of upper surface of leaves. Whole leaf may become puckered and turn brown at the edges.
